  • 1/3 cup lemon juice
  • 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tbsp Italian seasoning
  • 4 large bone in thick pork chops
  1. In a large measuring cup, whisk together the lemon juice, oil, garlic, salt and seasoning.
  2. Place the pork chops in a large plastic resealable bag and pour the marinade over top, coating them pork chops on both sides.
  3. Seal the bag and refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight.
  4. If you can, turn the bag once in a while to coat the pork chops evenly.
  5. When you are ready to grill, preheat your outdoor grill on medium high heat, around 375-425 °F. Make sure to lightly oil the grill grate to prevent sticking if needed.
  6. Remove the pork chops from the marinade bag place the pork chops on top of the grill. Take some of the remaining marinade and brush on top for one last flavour boost.
  7. Cook the pork chops for 7-10 minutes on each side OR until they reach an internal temperature of 140 °F. Remove, tent with tinfoil and let rest for a few minutes ,then serve. ( The temperature will raise if you tent them, but if you don't want to tent them, cook them to 145 °F.)
