Greek Style Grilled Pork Chop Meal

Barbecue season is here! Well, it's been here for awhile, but now that school is almost done, we are planning to have more time outside with friends.

And this is the perfect meal to prepare for nights like that!

Greek Style Pork Chop Meal
serves 4

Marinaded pork chops:
1 Tbsp. red wine vinegar
1 tsp. dried oregano
1 tsp. olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced

4 (4-ounce) boneless pork chops

Combine marinade ingredients in a zip-top plastic bag. Add pork to bag & seal. Marinate for 20 minutes, turning after 10 minutes. Make the Tzatziki & Salad in the meantime.

Heat a grill pan or barbecue over medium-high heat. Coat the pan with cooking spray. Remove pork from bag & discard marinade. Sprinkle both sides of pork evenly with 1/4 tsp. salt. Add pork to pan & cook for 4 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Remove pork from pan & let stand for 2 minutes.

Tzatziki sauce:
3/4 cup plain Greek-style yogurt
1 Tbsp. chopped fresh dill
1Tbsp. red wine vinegar
1 tsp. olive oil
1/8 tsp. salt

Combine all ingredients & stir well with a whisk. Cover & chill until ready to serve.

2 medium tomatoes, diced
1 cup diced cucumber
1/2 cup diced red onion
1/8 tsp. salt

Combine all ingredients & toss.

Toasted Pitas:
2 pita rounds
olive oil
Greek seasoning

Very lightly brush pitas with olive oil. Sprinkle with Greek seasoning. In the last few minutes of grilling the pork, place pitas on barbecue or grill pan until heated through. Not too long or they will turn to pita chips! :) Remove from barbecue & cut into quarters. 

This meal takes about 30 minutes to get on the table - fast, simple, & delicious! 

Go forth & enjoy the season of grilling & backyard barbecues!
