I found this recipe in the Cooking Light Summer issue. It was wonderful. My DH, who isn't a big pork eater, even like them. Hope you enjoy. I just had to share with my recipezaar family. Preparation time includes marinating.

These are very good pork chops that have a nice lemon flavor with a hint of licorice. I put the water, sugar, and kosher salt in a zipper bag and shook vigorously. Added the remaining ingredients and marinated for about 3 1/2 hours. Forgot to tell DH to add the pepper before grilling but didnt miss it. Will make these again!
