It was a beautiful night for grilling. The Greek Pork Chops were delicious. The pork was juicy and the marinade seasoning was perfection. I have no idea what makes them Greek pork chops, but that's what the magazine called them.
The vinaigrette on the salad was good. It got a little thick after sitting awhile, but I read that I can add more olive oil or fruit juice to thin it out.
I've made the cheesy garlic biscuits before. They remind me of the ones at Red Lobster. Mmmm.
2 tablespoons olive oil
4 teaspoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
2 teaspoons dried oregano
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon ground mustard
4 boneless pork loin chops (~3/4" thick)
In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the first nine ingredients; add the pork. Seal the bag and turn to coat. Refrigerate 8 hours or overnight.
Drain and discard marinade. Grill pork, covered, over medium heat for 4-5 minutes each side or until a thermometer reads 145º. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
Berry Salad with Homemade Blueberry Vinaigrette
1/2 cup fresh blueberries
1 garlic clove, chopped
1 teaspoon onion
2 tablespoons good vinegar (I used balsamic)
1/2 teaspoon sugar
2 tablespoons olive oil (may need extra)
In a blender or food processor, whiz the berries, garlic, onion, vinegar, and sugar until berries are liquified. Add olive oil until you reach the desired consistency (After 2 tablespoons of olive oil, if you need more oil, you can substitute fruit juice for a thinner dressing). Run through a mesh sieve, and drizzle over salad greens with fresh berries, caramelized onions, roasted pecan bits.
*Dressing is 40 calories/tablespoon (using 2 tablespoons olive oil)
Easy Garlic-Cheese Biscuits
From Betty Crocker's New Cookbook
2 cups Bisquick baking mix
2/3 cup milk
1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese (2 oz)
