Marinated in lemon and basil pork chop that is grilled and ready in 10 minutes!
Pork chop marinated in lemon and basil for at least 30 minutes. The longer the better taste. Then grilled to perfection… ready in just 10 minutes. I served my pork chop as healthy as possible with brown rice/spelt mix and frozen green peas.
I’m just avoiding lately very fattening dishes. It’s because I want to learn more and more new possibilities of serving healthy food. It’s just that I’m enthusiast lately by vegan and clean eating recipes. I like to explore in the kitchen and mix some ingredients with another that I would never thought about. Also, I try new foods like almond milk. I’ve never had an almond milk before. But now that I’m trying vegan recipes almond milk is also in my kitchen. I don’t like it with my coffee but I like it in baking or ice cream.
To minimize to much oil by frying the pork chop I used George Foreman grill that it’s my favorite for a long time now. I use it for meat, quesadillas and even my husband uses for sausages. This grill is very useful in my kitchen, definitely I can recommend it.
I marinated my pork chop in basil/lemon/garlic mixture to get so much flavour. Then it was grilled very quickly. It didn’t required a lot of time. If you will keep the pork chop on the grill to long it will become very dry. Don’t cook it too long. I like quick and simple recipes. This recipe is only for 1 pork chop but if you like to serve more than 1 serving just double the ingredients.

Great flavors in that pork chop, such a classic combination of ingredients. Grilling is such a healthier method of cooking compared to frying. I don’t own a George Foreman but I do use my BBQ extensively for dishes like this.
YUMMY!!! Lemon and Basil is always a wonderful combination. I can imagine having this for dinner. Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe!

I try to diet too. It’s hard sometimes:) Thank you!
Yum, we don’t eat enough pork but this is good inspiration to cook it more. Love the basil and lemon combination. Thanks for sharing!
