Using different herbs means you can vary this recipe to suit your own taste. I like oreganum or basil. You can use a mixture if you prefer. Cooking time is marinating time.

Directions

  1. Whisk oil into the lemon juice & herbs.

Great marinade and so easy and versatile. I had boneless pork chops on hand and marinated in a ziplock bag overnight. Used about 1/2 tablespoon of sesame oil and parsley and thyme. Added some minced garlic and fresh ground pepper. If you love lemons you will enjoy this marinade. DH grilled the chops and they were perfect, moist and tasty. Thank you JenT for sharing this recipe. Made and reviewed for the Aussie Swap #32.

This was very good! I added thyme and garlic to the marindade! The pork loin chops were thick...and after browning I put them in a 450 degree oven to finish cooking!! Perfect! Also used a little marinade for the fresh asparagus! Thank you!
