Garlic Basil Pork


This is a great light summer dinner.  It's been so hot here it's almost to hot  to eat.  I used Good Seasons Italian Dressing on this.  When I make that dressing I always add either 1 1/2 TBL brown sugar or 1 1/2 TBL honey.  Sure makes it tasty.  The greens can be whatever you like.  Mine is very simple, romaine lettuce, celery, radishes, tomato, cucumber, some chopped almonds and red cabbage.

This is a quick marinate that you can use on pork, fish, or chicken.   It's a very quick, easy with lots of flavor, and you can marinate your protein for just 20 minutes and still have great flavors.  Of course the longer you marinate the better it could taste.  Just remember if you put it in the refrigerator to take it out and let it come to room temperature before you cook it, and pat off any excess.  The recipe below is for a small marinate so if you wanted to do like chops or larger portions just increase all the ingredients.  I took a chunk of pork off a boneless roast and cut it into strips and put on my salad.
2 cloves garlic
3 TBL basil
2 TBL lemon basil
1 tsp thyme (dried)
1 TBL dried minced onion
4-5 TBL olive oil or vegetable oil
salt and pepper
Mix all ingredients in small food processor and toss your protein in mixture.  Refrigerate for 20 minutes or longer.
Cook pork in a hot skillet about 3-5 minutes on each side.  Can be cooked on an indoor grille pan or outside on the bbq grille.

Thanks for stopping by, have a wonderful day and Remember to Find the Time to Do all the Things You Love.
