Top Review by Chicagoland Chef du

WOW, this marinade is terrific and will be used often. I marinated boneless pork chop for almost 2 hours. My picky kids proclaimed this their "favorite way to eat chops" and we got 5***** review from all. We grilled 'em outdoors. My only change made to the recipe was that I used only 1 t black pepper. I was pleased that the chili powder and black pepper was not too spicy. Just a perfect blend of seasonings. Thanks a bunch LizzyGirl!
