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 Lemon, Garlic & Herb Butter 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.


Prep Time

20 minutes

(4) boneless Stemple Creek Ranch pastured pork loin chops

(1) tub Clover Lemon, Garlic & Herb Butter Spread

1/2 cup fresh basil leaves, minced

sea salt & fresh ground pepper to taste

  • 1 : Melt Lemon, Garlic & Herb Butter in a microwave safe dish (approximately 20 seconds)
  • 2 : Blend melted butter and minced basil leaves in a shallow dish. Add pork chops and coat with butter mixture. Allow to rest and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 20 minutes or up to 2 hours.
  • 3 : Heat grill to 400F. Season chops with salt and pepper, and grill over direct heat for about 4 minutes per side, brushing with more butter mixture.
  • 4 : Let rest for (5) minutes before serving. Pairs beautifully with corn, grilled veggies, or a big green salad!
