Cilantro and Lemon Marinated Pork Chops

  • Preparation 20 MIN
    Cooking 8 MIN
    Marinating 15 MIN
  • Servings 4
  • Freezes



  1. In a blender, purée the herbs, oil, Parmesan, garlic and lemon. Season the sauce with salt and pepper.
  2. In a baking dish, drizzle the meat with half the sauce. Let marinate for 15 minutes or overnight. Refrigerate the remaining sauce until ready to serve.
  3. Drain the meat and discard the marinade. In a lightly oiled ridged skillet over medium-high heat, grill the meat for about 4 minutes on each side or until the desired doneness. Set aside on a plate. Cover and let rest for 5 minutes.
  4. Serve the chops with the cooked beet cubes and the avocado slices. Drizzle with the reserved sauce.


The meat and marinade can be frozen in a vacuum-packed bag or sealable plastic bag the day before. As a bonus, when frozen in a marinade, meat is less altered by thawing.
