Grilled Citrus-Basil Pork Chops with Lemon, Garlic & Clover Butter

Fire up the BBQ! These succulent, juicy pork chops are definitely a cut above the rest. We started with local pastured-raised pork from fourth generation family owned Stemple Creek Ranch in Tomales, California. Then we marinated them in our rich, flavorful Garlic & Clover Butter ย mixed with fresh summer basil. A little salt & pepper as they hit the grill is all you need for a mouthwatering meal you’ll make again and again.
