“I created this recipe several years ago,” relates Jill McDeavitt of Greybull, Wyoming. “Since then, my family always asks to have pork chops done this way.” With onion, basil, garlic and rosemary, they pack flavor in every bite.

"Oh so good! We reserved the marinade for basting, but then forgot to use it as we were grilling. We used it as a dipping sauce instead and loved it!

"I made these last night and they were fabulous! I did not have tomato juice on hand, so I drained the juice off of some salsa. I did not reserve any marinade (forgot) but they were still moist and so flavorful (marinated for 24 hours in refrigerator)."

"Made this Sunday, and everyone loved it! There were no leftovers and it was moist, and the explosion of flavors in your mouth made you want more. Served with fresh green beans and cowboy beans. Definitely will make again, can't think of anything to change because it came out perfect. Broiled for 5 minutes a side in the broiler."
