Grilled Pork with Chimichurri Sauce

I love this dinner. It takes less than a half hour to make (a huge plus), and the homemade chimichurri sauce is soooooo good! Try it on a weeknight when you need to make dinner in a flash.

  • 3/4 cup fresh parsley
  • 3/4 cup fresh cilantro
  • 1/2 cup extra- virgin olive oil, plus more for brushing
  • 1 medium shallot, roughly chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, roughly chopped
  • 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar or fresh lemon juice
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 8 thin boneless pork chops (1.25- 1.5 lbs) (I use 4 chops)

Place the parsley, cilantro, olive oil, shallot, garlic, vinegar, and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper in a food processor.

Pulse to form a coarse paste.

Heat a large grill pan over medium- high heat. Pat the pork chops dry and season with salt and pepper. Lightly brush the grill pan with olive oil, then grill the chops until just cooked through, about 2 minutes per side.

Pour the chimichurri sauce over the chops and enjoy!

If you're not a fan of pork, use the sauce on something else. Since we only made 4 chops instead of the 8, we had lots of sauce left over. My husband used it for sandwiches, leftover chicken, etc...

Recipe from May issue of Food Network Magazine


  1. We love pork and make it at least once a week. I'm definitely going to use this recipe! Looks delish. We've been making a TON of pesto lately, and this isn't far off from that. :-)

  2. My husband and I make this exact recipe almost every single week - it's one of our absolute favorites! SO good!

  3. I love chimichurri sauce - looks great! :)

  4. Jessica- I LOVE pesto! I think I could have it everyday and not get bored

    Amanda- How funny! Did you have the recipe on hand or get it from the magazine too?

    Serena- thanks!
