"This is my favorite way to cook pork chops. Chops are seasoned with lemon juice, basil, parsley, and garlic, seared, and then topped with feta cheese. Delicious!"

crushed dried rosemary
fresh lemon juice
crumbled feta cheese with basil and sun-dried tomatoes
Yum! I mixed the lemon juice (1/2 cup) and seasonings together and marinated the chops for an hour rather than just dipping. I crumbled the feta and added it to the chops after I plated, and it melted just enough by the time we ate. I served them with Greek Lemon Roasted Potatoes and asparagus lightly poached in roasted garlic chicken broth. Fantastic!
If you are looking for an excellent pork/feta recipe PORK CHOPS w/ FRESH TOMATO, ONION, GARLIC & FETA (from this site) is the way to go. It puts this dish to shame. The key is to use thick cut chops.
Delicious....I didn't change a thing with this recipe. Thanks for the post.
Execellent! Lots of flavor. Family enjoyed it. I didn't have enough lemon juice (only about 1/2), but didn't need an entire cup. Having the extra would make dipping easier. I will definitely make this again.
Wow! This was fantastic. I actually took all the ingredients (just one lemon tho and more olive oil than recipe asks for) and blended them in a zipblock and let the porkchops marinate in the bag for a couple of hours. Then I cooked the dinner according to the recipe and added all the ingredients all over again to the meat in the pan (less one lemon). I minced the garlic, rosemary and basil and it turned out like a pesto, then rubbed it on top of meat. My husband raved about this meal as did I! It was sooo good. I think the marinating the pork made a huge difference!
By far, the best pork chop I have ever eaten. This is amazing and it will probably become one of my staple foods. I used a fairly well-seasoned cast iron pan and they seared beautifully. I used the jarred minced garlic with a little bit of it's juice. Wonderful!
Here are my changes: did garlic powder instead of minced, doubled the herbs, combined herbs and lemon and marinated chops for about an hour, had thin cut pork chops so I cut the time down to 2-3 mins per side - once I flipped them over I added the crumbled feta and let the cheese melt while the other side was cooking to prevent over-cooking them. Then I let them sit for a about 5 mins covered. Very easy and fast and tastes amazing! I've made these before without marinating and they weren't as good. I highly recommend marinating them - makes the flavors pop! Served with long grain & wild rice w/ chopped red pepper and onion, and corn.
Delicious!!!! The chops I used were really thick, so they needed a bit more cook time. I ended up throwing the lemon juice in the pan to simmer until done...used the pan juice as a salad dressing. YUM!
