I used thick-cut boneless chops & decreased the cooking time to compensate. Next time I will brine them first in a saltwater bath w/ a couple of sprigs of the herbs. That will help keep them juicy & add flavor. I was unsure as to whther the recipe meant to use the greenery of the lavender or teh lavender buds. Never used the greenery before but assumed that it would be "lavender buds" if that was what was intended so I used the greenery. I was also unsure of using so much since lavender can have such an overpowering flavor but I braved it. I was soo glad....it had lots of flavor w/out the unpleasant "perfumey" taste that the buds can have. I decreased the oil by half & next time I will only give them a rub of oil & then just rub on the herbs to avoid flare-ups on the grill. I drizzled a bit of honey on the plate to dress it up some & it added the perfect flavor. We both got more "drizzle" when we ran out.;o) Loved the recipe & I will definitely repeat but I'll make my suggested changes next time. Read More

I needed a bit more flavor. The rosemary and thyme were fine as well as the lavender but I missed a little bit of fresh ground pepper and seasoning salt. Only made two steaks and threw them on the grill as I made burgers. Very simple to prepare -- I do think the oil is an excessive amount and should be reduced significantly. Read More

So good! I cooked them in a frying pan using the marinade oil since it was way too cold outside to grill and they were incredible! Read More

First time using Lavender! I knew in advance that it was way to much oil. I used dried herbs for mine and also baked mine. I added a bit of oil to both sides and then rubbed in the herbs and let it sit for about 20 mins before cooking. They got a good taste to them but as others have stated they are lacking in some flavor. Family agreed that they were okay but thought other pork recipes were better. I may though try this one again and add some salt and pepper to spice it up. I suggest that others do so too if they are the type to need a bit more umph to their meat. Read More

Like everyone else said they needed some salt. I brined the steaks for 2 hours before preparing also there was a bit too much lavender and too much oil. Next time I think I'll cut those in half. Read More
