Basil & Balsamic Marinated Grilled Pork Chops

Basil & Balsamic Marinated Grilled Pork Chops

Fresh basil and rich Traditional Aged Balsamic Vinegar add tremendous flavor to your grilled pork chops.



In a shallow glass casserole dish, whisk together the More Than Olives Aged Balsamic Vinegar, Dijon, basil, salt, and pepper. Continue to whisk and add the More Than Olives Garlic Olive Oil in a thin stream.

Place the pork chops in the marinade in the dish. Turn each chop to coat both sides. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. You can leave them in the marinade for up to 3 hours. 

The flavors absorb into the meat the longer it marinates. If you marinate them longer, the meat may become mushy. 

Heat the grill. For pork chops, the rule is to cook them to an internal temperature of 145 degrees F. How long you cook them on the grill will depend on the thickness of the chops and the temperature of your grill. 

If the grill is on the hot side, it may take about 10-15 minutes. Using an instant thermometer is the best way to ensure the meat is cooked to the perfect temperature. 

Rest them for a few minutes before serving.

At More Than Olives we thoughtfully select specialty foods that will enhance your kitchen culinary experiences. We continue to look for new products and we welcome you to visit our Folsom store for tasting experiences.

“This is a great little place. The staff is super friendly and helpful. We were visiting from GA and couldn’t take the large bottles of oil or vinegar back with us on the plane so they helped us pick out our favorites and shipped them to us. It all arrived in perfect condition. Everything is so good but our favorite is the Sex on the Beach balsamic vinegar! If you’re in Folsom you have to go! ❤️”
Jennifer Pearson

“The olive oils and vinegars are so tasty. I love how easy it is to refill the bottles. I am looking forward to salads, marinades and more this summer as fresh fruits and vegetable become available. Love the staff and love the quality of the products.”
