    Serves: 6 

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

    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.


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