Basil-Lime Grilled Pork Chops

Though we are now fully ensconced in autumn, you wouldn’t know it from the weather. Around here, it is still, most definitely, grilling season. My pal, Missi, passed along this recipe, and, after a few tweaks, it made some of the best pork chops I’ve ever tasted!

4 pork chops, boneless 
Juice of 2 limes
4 cloves garlic, finely minced
¼ cup finely chopped basil
½ tsp. parika
Salt & pepper to taste

Squeeze lime juice into a shallow bowl. Season pork chops with salt and pepper, then poke with a fork on both sides. Immerse pork chops in lime juice; rub on basil, garlic, and paprika until completely coated. Refrigerate and marinate for 30-60 minutes.

Preheat grill over medium heat. Grill pork chops 5-10 minutes per side, until internal temperature reaches 160 degrees.
