A great marinade for pork. The marinating could be done for a shorter time, but I love the flavor it gets after sitting that long.

People, this is exceptional!! The flavor is so magnificent you MUST try this. I did not change anything. I had five Iowa Pork Chops that I marinated overnight. I can only imagine what the flavor would be like after 2 days in the marinade!!! Rodger did not say how much cayenne pepper to use so I added ½ teaspoon. Rodger thank you for sharing this, it has become a family favorite!!! I keep my gingerroot in the freezer I think it grates easier.

This was just excellent. I was able to marinate mine for 2 days and it was melt in your mouth juicy and oh so flavorful. The wind was blowing too hard to grill so I baked mine for 40 minutes at 350 and broiled it for 5 minutes longer to brown well. Excellent. Thanks for sharing. :)

So tender and juicy! I was only able to marinate it for about four hours and it was amazing. I can only imagine how much better it would be after 24 hours. The kids gobbled it up and went for seconds and thirds! This is definitely a keeper - thank you Rodger!
