I believe this is originally a Weight Watchers recipe, but I've been using this marinade on pork or chicken for years. It's quick, simple and cheap!
- 1 teaspoon lemon zest
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon oregano
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 4 pork chops
- Combine the first five ingredients (I've found the lemon zest and lemon juice requirements are perfect for one lemon).
- Place pork chops in the marinade for at least 30 minutes.
- Salt and pepper pork chops to taste, then grill (approx. 5-7 minutes per side).
I cooked a batch of these for my Husband and I. Since its just the 2 of us, I made 4. Two for the current dinner and saved 2 for freezing, (not cooked, just marinated). My husband oddly enough didn't like it at first, however I did, so I gave it 5 stars. The second time I cooked it, was thawed from the freezer then pan fried. It did alter the taste probably from freezing in the marinade. Both my Husband and I enjoyed it from frozen to thawed, then cooked. I personally enjoyed the frozen version thawed better. So if you like the convenience of frozen dinners that take 10 mins, I would try this one out.
Just a few ingredients but it gave a great taste to the pork chops. They were in the marinade at least 1 hour. I also used the juice of a lemon and didn't measure. Thanks walesmd :) Made for PAC Fall 2011
