from "Just Cook This" with Sam the Cooking Guy. Prep time does not include overnight marination. He describes the marinade as the food cousin of the little black dress :)

OK, this was seriously amazing! I put my chops in to marinade during the day on Friday on the pretense that we'd be having them for dinner on Saturday night - but I forgot that my husband had band practice, so that left them until tonight. I was a little worried that they might taste a little off or something, but I was not disappointed at all - and neither was my husband! I used big, thick boneless pork chops and they were so juicy and have GOT to try this! "Little Black Dress" for pork chops indeed!
