greek_pork_sm.jpgAlthough the dill-yogurt sauce and tomato salad give the dish a unique Greek flavor, the super easy marinated pork was the real star. It is so delicious and versatile I plan on using it for my go-to pork chop recipe with many other sides, like cheese grits and okra or rice pilaf and green beans.

Pork:
2 tbsp red wine vinegar
1 tsp dried oregano or Italian seasoning
2 tsp olive oil
2 cloves of garlic, minced
Sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste
3-4 thick cut boneless pork chops
Cooking spray
Combine the vinegar, oregano, olive oil, and garlic in a zip lock bag. Add the pork to the bag and seal. Marinate the meat for 20 minutes at room temperature, turning after 10 minutes.Heat a grill pan or frying pan coated in cooking spray over medium high heat. Remove pork from marinade and season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste. Add pork to pan, and cook for 4-5 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Remove pork from pan and let it rest for 2-3 minutes.

Dill Yogurt Sauce:
1/2 cup of Greek style (or regular) plain yogurt
1/2 tbsp red wine vinegar
1 tsp olive oil
1 1/2 tbsp fresh dill weed, chopped (or 1/2 tsp dried)
1 clove of garlic, minced
Sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste
Combine all of the ingredients together in a small bowl until mixed thoroughly. Place in the refrigerator until needed.

Tomato Salad:
2-3 Roma tomatoes, chopped
1/2 bunch of green onions, chopped
Juice of 1/2 lemon
salt and pepper
optional: chopped cucumber and kalamata olives
Combine all ingredients.
