These pork chops are marinated in a flavourful citrus-herb marinade. Be sure to grill them hot and fast. If you have thicker chops, grill them just as hot, but for a little longer.

Step 1

Mix together the parsley, garlic, oil, rosemary, orange and lemon peel, sugar, oregano, salt and pepper.

Spread the mixture over each chop, cover and refrigerate overnight.

Step 2

Preheat a grill/electric fry pan.

Remove as much of the marinade from the chops as you can by patting with a paper towel.

Step 3

Grill the chops for 3 minutes on either side and rest for 3 minutes. Serve on green beans, cooked as directed.
