the Ingredients

20151023095409 Row Pork 33
  • 4 boneless pork loin chops, each about 170 grams and 2.5 centimetres thick
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 paper-thin prosciutto slices
  • Extra-virgin olive oil


  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh sage leaves
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice


  • 01 Prepare the grill for direct cooking over medium heat (180°C to 230°C).
  • 02 Using a sharp knife, butterfly each pork chop by making a slit halfway up the fat side of the chop and enlarging the slit to extend to within 1 centimetre of the opposite side. Do not cut all the way through. Open each chop like a book and season the inside with salt and pepper.
  • 03 Lay one slice of prosciutto inside each chop, folding the prosciutto to fit, if necessary. Close the chops and press tightly. Lightly coat the outside of the chops with oil and season evenly with salt and pepper.
  • 04 Brush the cooking grates clean. Grill the pork chops over direct medium heat, with the lid closed, until nicely browned on the outside with just a trace of pink on the inside, about 8 minutes, turning once or twice. Meanwhile, make the sauce.
  • 05 In a small skillet over medium heat on the stove, melt the butter and cook until bubbly, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the sage and cook for about 1 minute. Remove the skillet from the heat. Allow the butter to cool for about 1 minute and then add the lemon juice. Stir well and spoon the sauce over the chops. Serve right away.
