Reviews for Herbtastic Pork Chops
"This recipe came out great and was easy to cook. I had all the herbs growing in my garden and add a little basil. I will try this herb mixture on other foods."
"This was absolutely fantastic!! I don't grow my own herbs so it was a tad bit expensive to buy all the fresh herbs but it was well worth it. I grill inside on my Jenn-Aire and my grill was not large enough to do all at the same time so I did the chops first and kept them warm while I did the squash. Served it with an Italian pasta salad I got from the TOH web-site. It was a great late summertime feast!"
