Can I use boneless pork chops for this recipe?
Yes, you can use boneless pork chops for this recipe. Just adjust the cooking time accordingly. Although, generally, bone-in chops will give you a juicer result.
Why did you choose rosemary for the marinade?
Rosemary pairs well with pork and adds a subtle herbal note to the dish. Feel free to experiment with different herbs and spices to find your favorite combination.
Is it necessary to thread the pork chops onto skewers?
No, you can skip this step and simply lay the pork chops flat in a pan or griddle. However, threading them onto skewers helps distribute heat evenly and prevents the meat from becoming too dense.
