    kcdelong's Note:

    I got this recipe from my friend a few states over. I was kind of skeptical because of the combonation looked a little odd to me....BUT OMG! These pork chops are great! Cooking time does not reflect marinating time.

      I got this recipe link from a friend (food network Bobby Flay) - I'm glad you already posted it! Now all the work is done for me and it's in my cookbook. My family was leery to say the least. The ingredients seem odd but WOW!!! They work! (except my husband hates pickles so his was pickle less). This is a keeper for sure! I'll post a pic.
