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.
- 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.
