Fire-Grilled Pork Chops

Photo: Karry Hosford
Yield 4 servings (serving size: 1 pork chop)
If you don't have a grill, simply broil them. Marinating them overnight will allow the flavor to more fully penetrate the meat, but you can cook them as soon as an hour after seasoning.

Ingredients

  • 4 (6-ounce) bone-in center-cut pork chops (about 3/4 inch thick)
  • 2 teaspoons extravirgin olive oil
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons herbes de Provence
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 teaspoon coarse sea salt
