I used this for deer chops the first time. The aroma, while grilling, was fantastic and the taste even better. I recently used the marinade to do a whole pork loin on a spit over an open fire.
- 1 1⁄2 lbs deer chops or 1 1⁄2 lbs pork chops
- 1⁄4 cup soy sauce
- 1⁄4 cup vegetable oil
- 1⁄4 cup sherry wine or 1⁄4 cup red wine
- 1 teaspoon ginger
- 1⁄4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1⁄4 cup molasses
- Mix the soy sauce, vegetable oil, sherry, ginger, and garlic powder.
- Pour mixture over chops and let marinate overnight.
- Remove chops from marinate and add the molasses to the marinade.
- Cook the chops on the grill over a low fire basting the chops with the marinade molasses mixture.
- If you use Venison, be careful not to over cook.
This is Fabulous! I didn't have the time to marinate over night, but only a few hours. I omitted the molasses b/c I was afraid it would be sweet, and I do not like 'sweet' meat. It was wonderful without it!! I seared it over medium heat and then put it (with the marinade) in the oven for about 35 minutes or until preferred done-ness. It was great. Thanks for posting.
I marinated 4 pork chops overnight and then it was too windy to light the grill. :/ I ended up pan frying, but the chops turned out wonderful. The sauce is terrific Roger. Great flavor... not too sweet, not too tart. I will use this recipe again and hope we get to grill. Thank you for sharing your recipe! =)
This is really good. When I first decided to make this recipe for dinner, I did not realize it had to be marinated overnight. I marinated it for about 5 or 6 hours instead. I grilled it on my tabletop, electric, crockery grill. The chop was still good. I had a baked potato with it. I brought the remaining marinade to a boil in a saucepan and cooked it for about 5 minutes. I didn't thicken it. I spooned some of it over my baked potato. It made the potato quite tasty. Next time I make this, I will marinate the chops overnight, or 12 hours as the recipe suggests doing. Thanks Roger for a great recipe.
