Orange-Ginger Grilled Pork Chops

READY IN: 6hrs 20mins
Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

If you are planning to make more than 4 chops, then double the marinade/sauce ingredients. Plan ahead the chops need to marinade for a minimum of 6 hours or up to 24 hours --- this is very good!

This recipe made a VERY moist and tender pork chop. I only wished that they had more of the marinade flavor and THEN I read the recipe again and realized I neglected to glaze them while they cooked. I am sure adding this step will increase the flavor next time ( and there will be a next time ). I also successfully froze my pork chops in the marinade.
