ROSEMARY-MARINATED PORK CHOPS
ROSEMARY-MARINATED PORK CHOPS ~ 6 Servings
The Pork Chops marinate for 2 days. This is a delicious meal! These chops can also be grilled or broiled with side dishes to suit.
Marinated Pork Chops
2 ¼ cups Water * ¼ cup fresh Rosemary Leaves, chopped * 2 TBSP Sugar * 1 TBSP Salt * 1 teaspoon dried Thyme, crumbled * ½ teaspoon whole White Peppercorns * 6 whole Juniper Berries * 6 whole Coriander seeds * 2 whole Allspice Berries * 2 small Bay Leaves * 6 count 1 ¼” thick loin Pork Chops, trimmed * Small Gourmet Potatoes (fingerlings), a peeled band across each middle * Salt and Pepper
ROSEMARY needs replanting and replenishing ... I freeze my Rosemary and it tastes like it is fresh off the bush. My Thyme needs replanting too. I didn't realize I was running so low on homegrown supplies; at least one of Hub's planting boxes he built for me will be used for an Herb Bed this Spring :-)
Combine first 10 ingredients in large non-aluminum pan and stir until sugar and salt dissolve. Add pork chops, turning to coat. Cover and refrigerate 2 days, turning occasionally.
After 2 days, remove chops from marinade (discard marinade), and sear. Place in an ovenproof cooking dish and surround with potatoes. Bake in a 350-degree oven for about an hour. Super simple; and super delish!
