Just Wonderful Lemon-Garlic Chops
These chops have a simple, garlicky lemon and tarragon marinade that is quite simply—just wonderful. Serve with a pasta salad and glazed baby carrots.
8 boneless pork chops, 1-inch thick
2/3 cup lemon juice
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 (4.5-ounce) jar chopped garlic
2 tablespoons dried tarragon, crushed
1/4 teaspoon paprika
- For marinade, in a small bowl combine lemon juice, olive oil, garlic and tarragon. Place pork chops in a 1-gallon self-sealing plastic bag; pour marinade over chops; seal bag. Marinate in the refrigerator for 6 to 8 hours or overnight.
- Drain chops, discarding marinade. Place chops on rack in broiler pan so the chops are 4 to 5 inches from heat. Sprinkle the chops with a little paprika. Broil for 5 to 6 minutes or until brown. Turn chops and sprinkle with paprika. Broil for 5 to 6 minutes more or until chops are just done.
