There was a sale on pork chops a few weeks ago at the grocery store and so I picked up the pork chops to bake. One morning, before work, I began marinating the pork chops, but since it was -31 degrees with the windchill, I decided to bake them in the oven instead of grilling them outside.
Throughout the past year, my friend Kara and I have been continuing on with our New Recipe Tuesdays. Back in November, I had Kara over for one of these great meals and made Pork Chops which were delicious. When I was cleaning up during a snowstorm we had a couple of weeks ago, I came across a scrap of paper where I had written down the recipe I had made. As this blog is a way for me to continue to document what I am cooking and how it tastes, and since this was an especially good (and easy) recipe, I wanted to make sure to document it.
I apologize to wherever the recipe originated. I know I read about it on a blog somewhere and modified it ever so slightly. I neglected to write it down and only had what I had written on my paper left.
Garlic Rosemary Pork Chops
3 garlic cloves
2 tsp chopped fresh rosemary
3 Tbsp oil
4 pork chops
Mince garlic, stir together with rosemary and oil. Add ¾ tsp salt, ½ tsp pepper. Rub over the chops.
Bake for 8-10 minutes at 400. Check the temperature with a meat thermometer to insure they are fully cooked. (Original instructions said to broil for 8 minutes, turning once). Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.
This was a great recipe. I will definitely make it again and cannot wait to try it this summer on the grill. Do you have a favorite way to make pork chops?
