Lemony Pork

Servings 4 Serves


  • 4 6-oz. boneless pork chops
  • 3 cloves garlic pressed
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup white wine
  • 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary crushed
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 3 tablespoons ghee or use coconut oil


  • DO-AHEAD TIP: Marinate pork chops overnight or for at least 4 hours (see recipe).
  • Place pork chops in a large zipper-topped plastic bag.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together next 8 ingredients (garlic through salt) until well blended. Pour mixture over pork chops, seal bag and turn to coat completely. Refrigerate overnight or for at least 4 hours.
  • At time of cooking, melt the ghee (or coconut oil) in a large skillet with a tight-fitting lid over medium-high heat. Remove pork chops from marinade (reserving marinade) and cook for 5 to 7 minutes per side or until cooked through.
  • Remove from skillet and keep warm. Add reserved marinade to the skillet. Bring to a slow boil then reduce heat to medium. Whisk up all the browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 8 minutes.
  • Serve sauce over pork chops. Enjoy!
