Shopping List
    Pork
  • 1 lb boneless pork chops, about 1 inch tall
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
  • feta cheese, to taste
  • salt and pepper, to taste Marinade
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 3/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 garlic clove, chopped

Instructions
  1. Step 1: Stir together the marinade ingredients. Place the pork chops and 3 tablespoons of the marinade in an airtight container. Massage to coat the chops in the marinade. Marinate for 2 to 24 hours.
  2. Step 2: Take the chops out of the refrigerator 20 minutes before cooking.
  3. Step 3: Heat a grill or frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the marinated pork and cook for 2 minutes per side. After the 4 minutes, turn off the heat and cover the pan with a lid to allow the residual steam to finish cooking the chops. Pork chops that are 1 inch or less will only need 2 to 3 minutes. Thick chops (about 1.5 inches) will need around 5 minutes. You can also check the internal temperature of the pork with a digital thermometer. When the pork registers 145°F at its thickest part, it’s ready.
  4. Serve: Transfer the chops to a plate. Pour the residual cooking liquid over the chops. Then drizzle the remaining reserved marinade (the part that didn't touch the raw meat) over the top. Sprinkle with parsley, feta, and pepper. Enjoy.
