Grilled pork chops - student style

Many cuts of pork are as lean as chicken


Marinating the chops overnight will produce a savoury, succulent meal with very little effort.

  • 1 teaspoon of honey

  • ½ teaspoon of basil
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • Salt and Pepper, to taste

Method

  1. Place the chops in a shallow container
  2. Mix Worcestershire sauce, honey and garlic and pour into container. Mix up a little more sauce if there is not enough to cover the chops
  3. Cover with cling film and refrigerate overnight, turning at least once after 2 hours. Make sure that none of the meat juice drips onto other foods in the fridge
  4. When ready to cook, preheat the grill to 200°C / 400°F / Gas Mark 6
  5. Combine the spices in a small bowl, and rub one side of each chop with the mixture. Season with salt and pepper to taste
