Lemon-Tarragon Grilled Pork Chops
from Cooking Light Magazine
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons kosher salt
1/4 cup chopped fresh tarragon
1 tablespoon grated lemon rind
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
4 bone-in center-cut pork chops (about 1/2 inch thick) -- (6-ounce)
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Combine first 3 ingredients in a bowl, stirring with a whisk until sugar and salt dissolve. Pour water mixture into a large zip-top plastic bag. Add tarragon, rind, juice, and pork to bag; seal. Marinate in refrigerator 2 hours, turning bag occasionally.
Remove pork from bag; discard marinade. Sprinkle pork evenly with pepper. Place pork on a grill rack coated with cooking spray. Grill 3 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness.
