Great "friends in the backyard" recipe. Be sure the chops are at least an inch thick to ensure a moist, tender meat. From Heart and Soul Cookbook from the Junior League of Memphis.

Thought these were good chops, loved the marinade, but thought it could of used something else to go with the marinade. It did make for a pleasant meal. Made for Alphabet Tag.

I really enjoyed this dish. Due to our winter weather lately, I wasn't able to grill outdoors, but instead I broiled our chops. I look forward to actually grilling it though, when our weather is more conducive to outdoor grilling. The marinade helped to keep the pork chops moist and flavorful, and I will definitely make this again. It's wonderful. Thank you for sharing your recipe, southern_gal12000. I made this for Spring 2011 Pick-A-Chef, and I'm glad I did.
