Grilled Garlic Pork Chops - Italian Style Favorite

These chops are flavorful and easy to prepare. Marinate them in advance for a quick and simple dinner, full of Italian flavors.  If weather permits, prepare these outside on the grill. They will have better flavor. If not, you can cook them in them in the oven. As always, use bone-in chops for better flavor and juiciness.

In the photos shown here, I'm using a charcoal grill at a Villa Perla del Lago which we rented on Lake Como In Italy. The villa was stunning and the chops turned out great. If you'd like to visit Lake Como I'd highly recommend this villa.

Julian's Italian Grilled Pork Chops
1/3 cup olive oil
6 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 lemon, juiced

salt and freshly ground black pepper
6 thin to medium cut, bone in pork chops
1 tablespoon white granulate sugar

Mix together the olive oil, garlic, oregano, basil, salt, pepper and and fresh lemon juice. Add the pork chops and marinate refrigerated approximately 4-8 hours. Preheat the grill or an oven to 400F degrees. Shake off excess liquid and sprinkle lightly with sugar on both sides. Place over the hot grill or on a cooking rack over a baking sheet in a the oven. On the grill, turn after about 4 minutes and continue cooking on the other side. Continue cooking until the chops are cooked through. Total cooking time about 12 minutes, depending on thickness of chops.
