When you know you're going to have a hectic week, you're tired of BBQ sauces and Shake 'n Bake, but you want something a "little more" without having to forage for bizarre ingredients, this is the marinade to turn to. Let chops marinate overnight then quickly broil or grill and presto: yummy dinner without a lot of fuss. A "quickie" will work; pop 'em in the marinade in the morning and serve by dinnertime.
- 4 pork chops
- 4 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
- 4 tablespoons honey
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce or 2 tablespoons tamari soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon sherry wine
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- Combine all ingredients in a plastic zipper bag and refrigerate for a day (quickly putting everything together first thing in the morning is easy and works well).
- At cooking time, drain chops and reserve some of the marinade for basting, then either preheat a grill with medium-hot coals or preheat your broiler; depending on the thickness of your pork chops, total cooking time should take 12 to 15 minutes, turning once and basting with the reserved marinade a couple of times early on.
sooo yummy!!! my little one couldn't get enough and the whole family asked for 2nds. the chops were tasty, extremely tender, and sweet but garlicy! definetly gonna make these again in the near future=)
My family really enjoyed these! They were easy to make too; just throw everything in a ziplock and let it sit, then grill when ready to eat!!! I made with mashed potatoes and macaroni and cheese as sides and it all went well together. The chops had just the right amount of everything, sweet, salty, and garlicky!!! YUMMY!!!
Excellent flavors! We have used the sauce recipe for all of our summer grilling - shrimp kebobs, chicken breasts, pork chops - and it is wonderful on everything. Thanks for posting!
