6New York pork chops
Juice of 2 lemons
1/4cupfreshly chopped basil
Place the pork chops in a gallon-sized zippered plastic bag. Add the juice, garlic, oil and basil. Zip the bag closed, then turn the bag several times to be sure the pork is all coated.
Place the bag in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours to marinate.
Heat a grill to 400 degrees.
Place the pork chops on the grill, close the lid and let pork chops cook for 5 minutes. Turn the pork chops once and allow them to cook for an additional 4-5 minutes or until the center of the pork chops reach a temperature of between 145 degrees (medium rare) and 160 degrees (medium).
Remove the pork from the grill and allow it to sit for 3 minutes.
