Grilled Pork Chops with Lavender Recipe

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Yield: 4 servings


4 pork loin or rib chops, about 3/4-inch thick
1 teaspoon coarse salt
1 teaspoon coarsely-ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon dried culinary lavender*
2 teaspoons minced fresh thyme leaves
1 teaspoon minced fresh rosemary leaves
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

* In cooking, use 1/3 the quantity of dried lavender flowers to fresh lavender flowers.  Do not eat flowers from florists, nurseries, or garden centers.  In many cases these flowers have been treated with pesticides not labeled for food crops.



In a small bowl, combine salt, pepper, lavender, thyme, rosemary, and olive oil; rub mixture onto the pork chops.  Cover the pork chops with plastic wrap and let sit 1 to 2 hours at room temperature.

Preheat Barbecue grill.  Place pork chops onto hot grill.  Cover barbecue with lid, open any vents, and grill 4 to 5 minutes; turn and grill an additional 3 to 4 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 155 degrees F. on a meat thermometer.

    Can DoTerra theraputic grade Lavendar essential oils be used instead of the dried lavendar? Just learning about eo’s and want to incorporate them in my cooking as well instead of dried herbs when possible.

      If you use essential oils in cooking it’s important to make sure it’s FOOD GRADE essential oils which would be safe for ingesting. Keep in mind that essential oils are very potent, so it is recommended to start out with a very small quantity to try as a replacement for dried culinary lavender in the recipe. Start with 1/2 to 1 drop in the first batch you make.
