Rosemary Lemon Pork Chop Marinade
Grilled pork chops is a favorite entrée at our house, and we've figured out the perfect marinade for a flavorful chop. Rosemary Lemon Pork Chop Marinade uses only a handful of ingredients to pack on the flavor.
Servings: 4 people
- 1/2 Tablespoon dried rosemary (see notes for fresh)
- 1/2 teaspoon dried sage (see notes for fresh)
- 2-3 cloves garlic, crushed
- 2 Tablespoons olive oil
- 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
- 2-4 pork chops
Whisk together rosemary, sage, garlic, olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper.
Pour over pork chops. Let marinate for a minimum of 3 hours.
Grill to your liking.
- Freshly squeezed lemon juice packs the most flavor, but bottled lemon juice can be used if desired.
- Use either fresh or dried rosemary. For fresh rosemary, use 1 tablespoon, and for dried, use 1/2 tablespoon.
- The same applies for sage. Use 1 teaspoon fresh sage or 1/2 teaspoon dried sage.
- Fresh garlic is a powerhouse of flavor, and I always recommend using it if possible. With that being said, jarred, minced garlic could also be used.
- A mild tasting oil such as canola or soybean could be swapped in for olive oil, if desired.
- A large zip-lock bag works great as a vessel to marinate meat. Remove the air, and seal tightly. Massage meat occasionally.
- Lemon Rosemary Marinade is great for lamb chops too.
