• 4 New York (top loin) pork chops, 1-inch thick
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon fresh rosemary, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh sage, chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • Additional fresh herbs, (optional)

Brush chops with lemon juice. In a small bowl combine oil, herbs and pepper; mix well. Rub herb mixture on both sides of chops. Arrange in a baking dish; cover and refrigerate 4 hours or overnight.

Place pork on grill, about 5 inches over slow coals. Grill 9-12 minutes, turning once, until internal temperature on a thermometer reads 145 degrees Fahrenheit, followed by a 3-minute rest time.. Garnish with fresh herbs, if desired.

Serves 4

* Note: If using dried herbs, reduce amounts by 1/2 to 1/3.

Change the flavor of this basic marinate by experimenting with other combinations of herbs. Serve with grilled vegetable kabobs and pasta salad.
