Easy Marinade for Grilling - chops or chicken

Today was a busy day and we are both traveling tomorrow so we needed something quick and easy for tonight. We love grilling when it's nice outside (actually, we grill year round, even in the snow!), and Jon comes up with the best marinades, so grilled pork chops it was.

Marinade for 2 Boneless Pork Chops

  • 1/4 c olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, pressed
  • 1.5 tsp dried oregano
  • 1.5 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes
  • A few turns of freshly ground black pepper

The chops marinated in the fridge for about 6 hours. Jon grilled them by searing them over high heat, and then he turned the heat to medium low and finished them - about 15 minutes.

YUM!!! For such a simple marinade, this delivered a ton of flavor!

I served the chops with sauteed broccoli rabe and shells tossed with butter and Parmesan cheese.
