Pork Chops on Green Beans

These pork chops are marinated in a flavourful citrus-herb marinade. Be sure to grill them hot and fast. If you have thicker chops, grill them just as hot, but for a little longer.


  • 8 x 1/2-inch thick 100% NZ pork chops
  • 1/2 cup fresh parsley, chopped
  • 2 x cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp fresh rosemary, chopped
  • 1 tbsp orange peel, grated
  • 1 tbsp lemon peel, grated
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp dry oregano
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 400g green beans, topped and tailed, blanched and quickly pan fried in 1 tbsp of butter


Mix together the parsley, garlic, oil, rosemary, orange and lemon peel, sugar, oregano, salt and pepper. Spread the mixture over each chop, cover and refrigerate overnight.

Preheat a grill/electric fry pan. Remove as much of the marinade from the chops as you can by patting with a paper towel. Grill the chops for 3 minutes on either side and rest for 3 minutes.

Serve on green beans, cooked as directed.

Serves 4
