This unusual pairing caught my eye one day in an old cookbook of my mother's which I was reading. I love those three ingredients but I wasn't too sure I'd like them together. Well, I'll leave that to you but my finicky husband asked me what made those chops taste soooo good!

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Whisk anchovies, rosemary, olive oil, vinegar, and garlic together in a large bowl; pour into a resealable plastic bag.

  • Season pork chops with coarse salt and ground black pepper; add to the plastic bag with the marinade, squeeze out as much air from bag as possible, and seal. Turn bag a few times to assure chops are coated in marinade.

  • Marinate chops in refrigerator at least 2 hours.

  • Set oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler. Prepare a jelly roll pan with cooking spray.

  • Remove pork chops from the marinade and shake off excess moisture. Discard the remaining marinade.

  • Cook under the broiler until no longer pink in the center, 6 to 7 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 145 degrees F (63 degrees C).

Very good marinade for pork chops. I used 3 ounces of anchovy paste for the anchovy fillets. Worked well. Next time I make this marinade I'll cut down the fresh rosemary to 1/4 cup. The six cloves of garlic was great. I grilled the pork chops on the Foreman grill for 10 minutes each chop. Read More

Disgard such a wonderful marinade--never!!! I spread it over the pork chops and baked it onto them. It was fantastic. I can picture it on chicken and fish and have been thinking of working with it to stuff a pork tenderloin. Or---maybe just eat it off a spoon---that good!!! Read More

Absolutely delicious! My husband and younger son love anchovies (me and my oldest cant stand them). Made these with the expectation of making something else for me and my oldest but was so good making them again 2days later (by request from everyone). Read More

Made this last night. Oh Mommy is this good. Marinated overnight and threw on the grill. I cut the recipe in half as I only had 2 chops. I used 1T.& 1t. dried rosemary didn't have fresh and used a 2 oz. can anchovies. I love garlic used 5 cloves. Cut the rest of the ingredients in half and sprinkled a little kosher salt and pepper on chops before putting on grill. Thanks Klantz for posting. Read More

this recipe is outstanding. My husband said they were probably the best he ever had. I had very thick chops and they took quite a bit longer than the recipe says. I am not a pork chop lover but these I would make again in a heart beat. I used dried rosemary as fresh was not to be had. Read More

I used this marinade on a bone-in turkey breast and left in the fridge for 24 hours. My husband usually doesn't ask much about my cooking but he had to know why the turkey was so delicious! Read More

I used dried rosemary boneless chops and a two ounce can of anchovies. These minor subs were a result of not wanting to run to the store. Everyone enjoyed even the kiddos. You definitely get a subtle difference in this recipe. But it it so subtle that no one will realize there is fish in it. Read More
