Method

  1. Ever tried lemon juice or lemon olive oil with pork chops? We’re hooked. Lamb chops work well here too, so do experiment – and if you’re lucky enough to have an open fire grill, well, that’s flaming brilliant.
  2. Lightly season the chops with salt and pepper. Grate the zest of the citrus fruits into a bowl, and add the crushed garlic, chopped rosemary, whole cloves and lemon olive oil.
  3. Add the chops and mix in the marinade with your hands. Squeeze over the juice from the orange. Cover the bowl and leave in the fridge overnight (or as long as you can manage).
  4. Remove the chops and pat them dry. Preheat a cast-iron grill pan and cook each chop on a medium heat for 4 mins on each side. Serve with some roasted carrots.
