If you think Bill and I eat a lot of pork because I post so many recipes with pork as the main ingredient, you’re right. That’s because we still have some cuts from last fall in our freezer and our order for this year has already arrived. So I’m always looking for new ways to cook it.
We love grilling, and this recipe is so easy and flavorful that it’s become a favorite. Plus, since we learned Bill can eat butter if it’s made from raw milk, a plethora of recipes (and not just pork) await for us to try!
I found Grilled Pork Steaks with Lemon Butter at allrecipes.com. Instead of steaks, I used chops and cooked them as little as possible because our pastured pork is very lean.
For the butter sauce, you just melt the butter, add chopped garlic, and cook it until tender. Then add the lemon juice.
Since I make unsalted butter, I sprinkled salt and pepper on the chops before basting them with the sauce.
All you do is put the basted side down on a very hot grill to sear for one minute.
Then baste the other side, flip them over and sear for one minute.
Turn of the direct flame (center burner on our Weber grill) and cook each side for three minutes, basting again each time the meat is flipped. Remove from the grill and cover with foil to rest about three minutes.
We served them with a summer veggie medley: sautéed onions, carrots, and green beans fresh from the Holland Farmers Market!
