Reminiscent of Souvlaki, these barbecued chops have a wonderful oregano, garlic and lemon flavour.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, black pepper and oregano in a plastic food storage bag and mix well.
  2. Use a sharp knife and make several small slits into the pork chops before adding them to the marinade mixture.
  3. Marinate for at least one hour, mixing occasionally. (Two hours is ideal at room temperature).
  4. Barbecue or grill in the usual manner, using the marinade to brush on while cooking.

This recipe is so easy and so flavourful. It was a huge hit with my family. I admit I downscaled the amount of oregano by more than half.... 2 Tbsp scared me a bit... and for us less was better. Otherwise a perfect recipe. My boneless chops were quite thin and I may have overcooked them a minute but they were moist and tender all the same. And the next day I sliced one thinly over a salad for lunch...lovely. Thanks for a wonderful and easy recipe.

Easy and delicious method for delicious souvlaki-style chops. I used fresh Greek oregano from our garden and marinated the chops for a solid eight hours. Pan grilled but it tasted like it cooked over an outside spit. Thanks for posting! Will make again soon I'm sure!

These were awesome! So tendier. I only marinated them for a little over an hour. Thanks so much for the recipe! My husband can't wait for me to make them again!
