Grilled Rosemary Pork Chops

While checking my recipe notebook, I found this recipe “grilled rosemary pork chops”. I’ve got it from old magazine but I can’t remember which magazine. =) I decided to give it a try since I have all the ingredients in the pantry. I was so happy with the result and we both enjoy our grilled pork chop and my hubby suggested trying the recipe with beef. The pork chops are very flavorful and I like the aroma of rosemary herbs.

Here is the recipe

6 pork chops, skin removed (but I did not remove the skin)
4 garlic cloves, peeled
1 tbsp rock salt
1 tbsp black pepper (coarsely ground)
1 ½ tbsp dried rosemary
6 tbsp olive oil

In a mortar, roughly pound the garlic with the salt, pepper, and rosemary. Add olive oil. Spread this marinade over both side of each chop and leave in a cool place, covered, for about 15 minutes. Preheat the griddle pan to very hot and grill each chop for 5-6 minutes on each side. Maybe the grilling part will depend on how thick is your pork chop.


  1. It's yummy! Tasty! But wow! It's full of cholesterol... I'm cautious eating the meat particularly pork!

  2. I have rosemary plant and haven't tried it yet on pork chop.i will make this recipe within this week .My children loves to eat so they will surely gonna like it.

  3. Looks tempting to me. Especially dipped into a nice barbeque sauce or soy sauce with calamansi and chilli sauce. Yum! :-)

  4. Looks delicious, this is what I do best, grilling. Never tried it with rosemary perhaps some other time :D

  5. I have that grillpan too, so convenient! I haven't tried rosemary with pork, I always use it with fish...this is one dish to try, thanks!

  6. Wow! I love rosemary too.. and fresh rosemary is much much better than the dried ones. Love your blog! :)

  7. Yummy! Ill try this one when I get back sa Pinas. This is nice for a BBQ party. I should do this on my birthday. Yipeee!

  8. Hmm what does rosemary do to grilled porkchop? I have seen it in some menus but I'm curious on the difference with or without rosemary.

  9. rosemary enhances the natural flavor of the meat and the same time nag-aalis ng lansa :)

    i best use it in roasting lamb chops :)

  10. you could also add thyme to it and oregano ... babango lalo

  11. I'm impressed hot you still managed to do this food. :))

  12. Quick and easy recipe! I think I'll try this next time I cook porkchop. I can imagine how the rosemary will give an extra, special flavor to the usual pork chops. I wonder if I can add some tarragon too or thyme... :)
