Just home from holidays, and no time for shopping, I didn't have any pork chops, but this sounded so good I had to try it. I did have a pork tenderloin , so I cut it into 1 1/2 inch slices, made the marinade and left it overnight. (had no garlic powder, so I used 2 fresh cloves, smashed and 2 teaspoons of fresh grated ginger.) It was wonderful!! a keeper and we will do it again, but next time with the pork chops. Thanks Margaret3!!

Me and my family have been eating dry bland pork-chops. This marinade is so amazing when ever we have pork-chops this is the way to go!! Also the soy-sauce was not over powering!

Delicious!! This recipe has amazing flavour & I only actually marinated the chops for about 5 hours (I did turn them in the marinade every half hour or so). I omitted the oil & used half the ingredients for 2 pork chops. If you are a novice with the grill like I am, watch the chops carefully - I had a little bit of burning that may have happened so quickly due to the sugar in the marinade.
