    About this recipe: Here's a quick and simple recipe for delicious pork loin medallions or chops. All you do is baste the meat with a sauce of butter, lemon juice and garlic. Very basic, yet you won't believe how moist and flavourful the chops will be.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 6 

    • 3 tablespoons butter
    • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
    • 1 clove garlic, minced
    • 6 pork chops
    • 1 pinch salt

    Method
    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:30min 

    1. Preheat barbecue for high heat and lightly oil cooking grate.
    2. Melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the lemon juice and the garlic and heat until garlic is tender. Remove from heat.
    3. Arrange the chops on a plate and coat top side of each chop with the butter mixture. Place chops on the cooking grate butter side down.
    4. Sear over high heat for 1 minute, coating the top side of the chops with the butter mixture while the other side is barbecuing. Flip the chops and sear the other side for 1 minute.
    5. Turn the meat, cover the barbecue and cook 3 to 5 more minutes per side, brushing occasionally with the remaining butter mixture. Pork chops are done when internal temperature reaches 70 C.

    Tip:

    If it's not barbecuing season, why not try making these under the grill?
