Grilled Pork Chops with Herb Butter Recipe

This recipe from My Recipes sounds divine.

4 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh chives
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh parsley
1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
4 bone-in center-cut pork chops (2 lb.)
Salt and pepper

In a small bowl, mash together butter, chives, parsley and mustard with a fork until smooth. Cover with plastic wrap and let stand at cool room temperature while pork chops are cooking.
Preheat a gas grill on high, covered, for 10 minutes, and then lower heat to medium. Pat pork chops dry with paper towels and sprinkle generously with salt and pepper. Grill, turning once, until an instant-read thermometer inserted into center of meaty part of a chop (do not touch bone) registers 145°F, 12 to14 minutes total. Transfer chops to a platter and top each with 1 Tbsp. herb butter. Loosely tent with foil to keep warm, let stand 5 minutes and then serve hot.

  1. Yum! That sounds great. I have never tried an herb butter over pork chops. I usually bake mine with apples and fresh thyme.
