Method

  1. Sit the chops in a dish. Mix together the garlic, parsley, fennel seeds, lemon zest and juice, oil and bay, then rub all over the chops. Leave the chops to marinate for at least an hour, or up to a day.

  2. Heat a barbecue, frying or griddle pan. Season the chops, then cook for 5-8 mins on each side until cooked through (if cooking in batches, wrap the cooked chops in foil while you finish the rest). Add the lemon quarters for the last min to char, then serve alongside the pork.

This was the best positive reaction I have had with pork chops. The lemon/herb is an excellent complement to the chops. DEFINATELY do the griddled lemon wedges, squeezing in the pieces of pork cuts through any fattiness and makes every chunk tasty.

Made this for two, marinated the chops over night and the flavours were so fresh and delicious. Cooked in the pan but crisped up the fat under the grill. Served with a mixed salad-great mid week meal

I have made his several times and each time to the recipe.
It is absolutely delicious.Normally I dont get to marinade it until an hour or so before but last time I marinaded it before I went to work in the morning and it smelt divine and tasted the best ever. Will make this again and again. Es fantastico!
