Greek-Alicious Grilled Pork Chops

READY IN: 26mins
Recipe by Mareesme

I wanted to develop a sweet and tangy Grecian-style marinade for pork chops on the grill. The honey also helps tenderize the meat and gives it a beautiful browning ability. I hope you enjoy this! (I didn't want marinade to have a strong garlic flavor, which is why I chose garlic salt.) Note: Times given do not include marinating time of at least 4 hours.

We really loved these chops! I marinated the meat for 8 hours and DH basted as he grilled. The result was succulent chops with layers of flavor. I initially thought it a tad sweet but DH thought that part was perfect. He thought the oregano was a dominant flavor yet I would consider adding more another time. By the end of the meal we both thought they were just great as is. I am a total heat wimp but used the amount of cayenne recommended. I could not discern any heat which makes it perfect for me. For those who like a little burn I'd suggest upping the cayenne. I served them with recipe #90822 and roasted carrots. We will be making this many times over the summer. Thanks so much for posting!
