I know this might sound silly, but I feel like a pansy because of my low comfort level cooking with the grill. However, I have given it some consideration and decided that I'd gradually move up to this skill level. As I still would like to cook things on the grill, eventually. Therefore, to master this challenge I came up with a solution to some sort of degree lol, by purchasing myself a cast iron grill pan from my favorite online store Amazon. I received it today just in time for me to be able to cook these fantastic Lemon Basil Grilled Pork Chops. I'm pleased to say that I did a great job for my first time of using my new cooking toy. They were so juicy and tender. 


Lemon Basil Grilled Pork Chops 

Ingredients

4 thick-cut, boneless pork loin chops
2 Tbsp. Olive oil
1 Tbsp. Basil leaves, minced
3 Tbsp. Minced garlic
3 Tbsp. Lemon juice
1 Tsp. salt
¾ Tsp. pepper

Instructions

1. Combine olive oil, basil, garlic, lemon juice, salt and pepper in a small bowl and mix well. Next, use a basting brush and or a spatula to coat both sides of your pork chops with the mixture. Place your chops in an airtight plastic container and cover. Let the chops marinate in the mixture for eight hours to overnight in the refrigerator. 

2. Heat your grill (or grill pan) to medium-high heat. Grill the pork chops for about five to six minutes per side (depending on the pork chop thickness), or until they reach an internal temperature of 145 F.
