Balsamic-Rosemary Grilled Pork Chops

Another winning Weight Watchers recipe here. The recipe is originally written calls for a pork tenderloin. However, since pork chops were on sale, I substituted them instead.

The original recipe is found in a Weight Watchers cookbook but it can also be found online at I did make some slight changes to the recipe and have included those below.

The photo may not be the greatest, but I can tell you the house smelled amazing and the chops had a taste to match. We definitely will be making this recipe again. The fact that it is WW friendly is an added bonus.

Balsamic-Rosemary Grilled Pork Chops
(Source: WW cookbook and
4 Tablespoons balsamic vinegar
½ cup extra virgin olive oil
4 cloves crushed garlic
2 teaspoon dried chopped rosemary
¼ cup lemon juice
1 Tablespoon fresh ground black pepper
1 Tablespoon kosher salt
4 3/4 inch pork chops

Combine all ingredients except pork chops in a large Ziploc bag.
Add pork chops, making sure all pieces are coated in marinade.
Place bag in the refrigerator for at least 6 hour turning occasionally. (It is best to let chops marinate overnight, if possible.)
About 30 minutes before you are going to grill the chops, remove the bag from the refrigerator and let it warm to room temp.
Preheat stovetop grill pan to medium high heat.
Spray with nonstick cooking spray.
Remove pork from marinade and arrange on grill pan.
Brown on all sides and cook through (firm to the touch), 8 to 12 minutes total, or until internal temperature in center reaches 150°F.
Remove chops from the heat and allow to rest 5 minutes before slicing.
