Ember's Pork Chops

READY IN: 2hrs 45mins
Recipe by ElaineAnn

A 2-step method for delicious tender chops. I prefer the grill method of finishing the chops, but if it's not grilling weather, these can be finished in the oven. Cook time does not include marinating overnight.

These were really tastey and not tuff or dried out. I did the second step in the oven since I alreay had it on for something else, but next time I will grill them. I used thick center-cut boneless chops and they worked great! Made for Week 3 Football Pool win 2010.
