    Turned out great. Added basil from our garden that the kids grew to get them to try it. Next time I'm making the kids pork without pepper. Served with garlic couscous and a spinach salad.

    This....... This came out amazing. no need to alter it, if anything make a little extra marinade and use it to baste the chops when they're on the grill.

    Easy and delicious. I had 5 bone in pork chops, so i added another tbsp of olive oil to spread the marinade out a bit more.

    Very tasty. My chops were possibly too thick because I had to triple the cooking time, but a great dish nonetheless!

    Not a great dish ... too lemony for my taste.

    turned out great on the thin chops i had on hand, just reduced the cook time to 3 minutes per side. i also only had basil paste, but it worked just as well! we will make again!
