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.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix the soy sauce, vegetable oil, sherry, ginger, and garlic powder.
  2. Pour mixture over chops and let marinate overnight.
  3. Remove chops from marinate and add the molasses to the marinade.
  4. Cook the chops on the grill over a low fire basting the chops with the marinade molasses mixture.
  5. 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.
