The Perfect Pork Chop

If you’ve been pondering what to do with those pork chops in the fridge, then get the grill ready, because I have the perfect marinade. And you probably have everything you’ll need already stocked in your kitchen.

3-4 Tbsp olive oil
¼ cup balsamic vinegar (not the high end stuff)
1/3 cup parsley, chopped
4-5 cloves garlic, chopped or minced
1 tsp coarse salt (I used black salt)
freshly ground black pepper
3-4 boneless pork chops

1. Place all ingredients in a Tupperware or Ziploc bag and add the pork chops making sure the marinade coats all sides. Chill for at least 4 hours, but overnight is even better.
2. Grill them.
3. Stuff face.

A few things:
-When I use a Tupperware, I usually turn the chops over halfway through the process to make sure that both sides get soaked.
-You probably don’t want use your fancy, $50 bottle of balsamic vinegar for this kind of thing.
-I used Cyprus Black Lava salt (from Saltworks) just for the heck of it, but kosher salt will do just fine.
