  • 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.

  • Arrange the chops on a plate and coat top side of each chop with the butter mixture. Place chops on the grill butter side down.

  • Sear over high heat for 1 minute, coating the top side of the chops with the butter mixture while the other side is grilling. Flip the chops and sear the other side for 1 minute.

  • Turn the meat, cover the grill and cook 3 to 5 more minutes per side, brushing occasionally with the remaining butter mixture. Pork chops are done when internal temperature reaches 145 degrees F (63 degrees C).

My family & I really like highly seasoned food. As is I knew this would be a very bland recipe. I mixed in Montreal steak seasoning with the lemon juice & a little water & marinated pork steaks for about 4 hrs. Then I poured off the marinade & mixed in the butter & brought it to a boil & then basted the pork steaks as recipe suggests. I fixed them in the broiler & they were delicious. Would have given a four but as stated as is I think the recipe is bland. Read More

This was absolutely delicious. At first I wasn't sure about putting the buttered chops on the high heat of the coals so I waited until they cooled a bit. Next time I won't. The high heat for some reason doesn't burn it it gives it a great sort of crust. Even my picky kids ate whole chop each. And it was easy to make - you didn't have to plan ahead to marinate. Definitely a keeper. I actually made extra of the butter mixture to use as a sauce for the side dish (couscous or rice.) Read More

These were okay I didn't find they had a lot of flavor myself. But they were very moist and tender. Make sure you don't over cook them though. I let mind marinade overnight but that didn't seem to help much. Read More

This was GREAT. Especially for low-carb diets but even if not. I added mesquite seasoning garlic and black pepper and marinated about an hour. Also I added tenderizer because the cuts I used were very cheap. Came very tender & very tasty. Thanks for the great recipe! Read More

I would have liked the marinade to get into the meat a little more so maybe poking it with a fork before marinating is a good idea. I marinated them for a few hours adding some black pepper and Adobo seasoning to the marinade and grilled them on my mini indoor grill. I just seared each side on high heat every other minute while basting the other side as recommended and kept a very close eye on it - you definitely have to do that on an indoor grill especially if you use tender boneless chops like I did. The boyfriend and I really liked the flavor; we're always looking for healthy and tasty recipes. I'll make it again thanks! Read More
