Greek Honey-Lemon Pork Chops
Prep Time:

Total Time:
4 hrs 26 mins


  • 4 bone-in pork rib chops, cut 3/4 inch thick (about 1-3/4 pounds total)

  • ¼ cup honey

  • 4 teaspoon finely shredded lemon peel

  • ¼ cup lemon juice

  • 2 tablespoon snipped fresh mint or 1 teaspoon dried mint, crushed

  • 2 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper


  1. Trim fat from chops. Place chops in a large resealable plastic bag set in a shallow dish. For marinade, in a small bowl stir together honey, lemon peel, lemon juice, mint, oil, salt, and cayenne pepper. Pour over chops in bag. Seal bag; turn to coat chops. Marinate in the refrigerator for 4 to 24 hours, turning bag occasionally. Drain chops, discarding marinade.

  2. For a charcoal or gas grill, grill chops on the rack of a covered grill directly over medium heat for 11 to 13 minutes or until chops are slightly pink in center (160°F), turning once halfway through grilling time.
