This was a wonderful marinade! I only had 2 pork chops so I cut the marinade down accordingly. I didn't grill mine.... baked it in the oven for 20 minutes. Will make again!

I did a quick marinade on these using my vacuum container. The meat was very nicely seasoned, tender and delicious. The chops were served with steamed broccoli and grilled corn on the cob. Made for Smokin' Hot in the Diabetic Forum.
