Grill

Ingredients

2
pork rib or loin chops, both 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 inches thick
1/2 tsp
salt
1/2 tsp
black pepper
1 1/2 tsp
rosemary leaves, chopped frsh
1 1/2 tsp
corn or canola oil
fresh rosemary sprigs for garnish

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 180 degrees Fahrenheit.
2
Trim loin chops of excess fat and sinew.
3
Sprinkle both sides of the chops with the salt, pepper, and chopped rosemary--pat the seasoning so they adhere to the meat.
4
Pour the oil into a plate and dip the chops into the oil on all sides to coat lightly.
5
Set the grill over high heat and allow it to get quite hot.
6
Lay the chops at an angle to the ridges and cook for 2 minutes, until clearly marked.

Turn them over, keeping the same angle, so the now visible marks align with the ridges.

Cook for 2 minutes in this side.

Turn the chops over again and now rotate them as well, so the visible marks are perpendicular to the ridges.

Cook for 2 minutes, until a crisscross is clear.

Turn the chops over for the third time, keeping them at the same angle.

Cook for 2 minutes, so that the second side of the chops has been on the grill as long as the first side.
7
Finally, stand the chops on their outside edges, balanced against the potato half or other prop.

Brown for about 2 minutes, shifting the chop as needed so the entire edge is browned.

Remove the chops to a platter and place in the oven for about 10 minutes, to allow them to decontract.

Garnish with a sprig of rosemary and serve.
