    30 minutes

    These pork chops are tossed in lime juice, garlic and basil then barbecued to seal in the juices while keeping the centre tender. Sure to be a crowd pleaser.

    FANTASTIC! I just made this for dinner tonight, and wow was it tasty! I like a little extra lime flavor, so I juiced 2 limes instead of one. I mixed the lime juice, garlic, basil, salt, and pepper together all at once, then put them in a ziplock type freezer bag. I trimmed the pork, then added it to the marinade. I let it marinade for about 5-6 hours. What a tasty dinner! Thank you for posting it!  -  06 Jul 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    My daughter and I made these the other night. We added 1/4 C of oil and let them marinate for two days. They were delicious!!!  -  09 Jul 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I can't wait to try this since we grill pork chops a lot. The one thing I can add is that I never grill chops over direct heat. It can make them tough. I always turn on the gas grill and heat it up but when I put the chops on the grill I turn off the burners on the side where I place the meat. Just keep the lid closed and the internal temp will cook the chops without making the meat dry or tough. It will take a bit longer but it's well worth the wait.  -  21 Aug 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
