I made this last night. I marinated the chops for a total of 3 hours moving them around every 30 minutes or so. I served them with green beans that I had flavored with soy sauce, garlic and lemon and with one of those Liption Dry Noodle and Sauce mixes (Thai Sesame flavored) I really enjoyed the chops and thought they were fabulous. Very juicy and full of tons or flavor. Normally that constitues 5 stars BUT the BF didn't like them at all which is odd because he is not a picky eater. I am the pucky one. Anyway, the recipe worked out exactly as planned and I totally enjoyed my dinner. Thanks for posting!
