Lemon Basil Pork Chops

We are big fans of grilling at my house, and we often grill Asian Pork Chops.  I love to change it up now and then, though, and I look for every opportunity to use the fresh basil that I have so much of at this time of the year.  Fortunately, there are many delicious recipes that allow me to do that, such as this one from Old Fashioned Living.  This is a wonderful summer recipe that combines some of my favorite flavors and is made even better by the fact that it is so simple (and that my husband is the one who does the grilling in our family!).

  • 1 can of frozen lemonade from concentrate (thawed)
  • 1/2 cup basil, cut into thin slivers
  • 4 T olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, sliced
  • 4 pork chops
  1. Combine first four ingredients, reserving 1/4 cup for basting.
  2. Marinate pork chops for 1-2 hours in the refrigerator, turning occasionally.
  3. Grill pork chops for about 20 minutes, turning several times and basting with the reserved marinade each time.

Difficulty: Easy
Time: 5 minute prep, 1-2 hours to marinate, 20 minutes to grill
