Grilled Pork Chops with Garlic-Basil Rub!

Yes it is okay to begin licking your lips after reading the title of this recipe it is as good as it sounds!


4 bone-in ribeye pork chops, 3/4-inch thickImage

Basil-Garlic Rub:
3 cloves garlic, peeled
2 tablespoons lemon juice, you can use fresh or bottled- I used bottled
1.5 cup fresh basil, packed
2.5 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon coarse salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepperImage

Get your food processor out… yes sometimes annoying but it will make your life easier in the long run.
While your processor is going drop in your garlic and get it to the minced point. Stop the machine and add your basil, turn it back on until the basil has reached the “chopped” stage.

You can now add your lemon juice, your salt and pepper as well as your olive oil.
Your mixture will become a sort of paste. This makes it perfect to rub over your pork chops and let them marinate.Image

Now you can spread the rub/paste over each side of your pork chops. I had extra time so I was able to let them marinate for about 30 minutes- which I always recommend!ImageImage

Preheat your grill to medium hot.

Grill your chops over direct heat.Image

Grill for about 5 to 6 minutes per side
Your internal temperature should be 145 degrees Fahrenheit

Make sure to let your chops rest before you dig in so they don’t lose all their juicyness!Image
