Herbed Butterfly Pork Chops
Use your herb garden for this basic chop. Simply change the flavor by changing the herbs. The cooking time is the same for grilling and for broiling. Serve with steamed green beans and pasta.

2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons chopped flat-leaf parsley
1/2 teaspoon crumbled rosemary
1/2 teaspoon crumbled thyme
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Sea salt to taste (optional)
- Brush chops with lemon juice.
- Combine remaining ingredients; mix well. Rub herb mixture on both sides of chops.
- Grill or broil for 10 to 12 minutes, turning occasionally until internal temperature on a thermometer reads 160°F (70°C). Garnish with fresh herbs, if desired.
Makes 6 servings.
