Grilled Pork Chops with Shallot Butter

If made ahead, allow the butter to come to room temperature before spreading over the pork. You can also combine the oil and herbs a couple of hours in advance.

Yield: 8 servings (serving size: 1 pork chop)

 

Ingredients:

•  8 (7-ounce) bone-in center-cut pork chops

•  1 teaspoon salt, divided

•  3/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

•  2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

•  2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh chives

•  1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh thyme

•  1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh rosemary

•  3 garlic cloves, minced

•  2 tablespoons butter, softened

•  2 1/2 teaspoons minced shallots

•  1/4 teaspoon grated lemon rind

 

Preparation:

1.  Prepare grill to medium-high heat.

2.  Sprinkle both sides of pork evenly with 1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper. Combine oil, chives, thyme, rosemary, and garlic, stirring well. Rub oil mixture evenly over both sides of pork. Place pork on grill rack; grill 6 minutes on each side or until a thermometer inserted in the thickest part of pork registers 155°. Remove pork from grill; let stand 5 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt.

3.  Combine butter, shallots, and lemon rind, stirring well. Spread about 1 teaspoon butter mixture over each pork chop; let the pork stand an additional 5 minutes.
