    1. With machine running, drop garlic through feed tube of food processor to mince. Stop, add fresh basil, and process until chopped. Add lemon juice, oil, salt, and pepper and process to make thin wet rub. Spread both sides of pork chops with basil mixture. Let stand 15 to 30 minutes.
    2. Prepare a medium-hot fire in grill. Brush the grate clean and oil the grate. Grill chops, over direct heat, turning once, to medium rare doneness, 5 to 6 minutes per side, or until the internal temperature reaches 145 degrees Fahrenheit, followed by a 3-minute rest time.

    So personally I do not eat pork chops, but I made this for my boyfriend I was going to cut recipe in half but I had 3 pork chops in the package and if I didn’t make the full amount of the sauce that goes on them I wouldn’t have had enough depending on how many pork chops you do I suggest doubling or even 2.5x the amount of the sauce for 4 pork chops I just barely had enough for 3 pork chops and the amount of what it calls for 4 chops.

    Not nearly enough sauce, you need very good meat to pull this off

    Turned out great. Added basil from our garden that the kids grew to get them to try it. Next time I'm making the kids pork without pepper. Served with garlic couscous and a spinach salad.
