I like using herbs from my garden and this marinade is so easy! Feel free to use it on chicken too! The marinade recipe comes from Jamie Oliver Recipes. I did not make the full amount listed here in the recipe. I cut everything in thirds since I was only marinating 2 chops.
ROSEMARY, GARLIC AND LEMON MARINADE
2 good handfuls of fresh rosemary, pounded
6 cloves of garlic, crushed
10 lugs of olive oil
3 lemons, halved, juiced and skin squashed
freshly ground black pepper
Step One- Mix everything together
BAKED PORK CHOPS
Ingredients 8 pork chops, or 4 double pork chops
1 rosemary, garlic and lemon marinade
salt and freshly ground black pepper
Step One- 1 Rub and massage the pork chops with the rosemary marinade and, ideally, leave for 1-6 hours for maximum flavour.
Step Two- Preheat oven to 425f.
Step Three- Season chops with salt and pepper and bake in oven for 45 minutes to one hour until internal temp reaches 165.
Because of my crazy work schedule, I’m pretty zonked when I wake up in the evenings to make dinner for everyone. Especially when I’ve already worked five night shifts in a row and have two more to go. I can turn into a hulk, just like that. Try me.
