Triple D's Lemonade Pork Chops

Total Time
Prep 1 hr
Cook 1 hr

Inspired from a Diner's, Drive-In's & Dives episode. I "THINK" I have all the ingredients right...I just scaled it down. Since I LOVE Lemon Pepper Chicken, this might be good for chicken, too!!!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a food processor, combine the lemons (rind & seeds too -- EVERYTHING), sugar and 1 cup water -- process until liquified.
  2. Strain the mixture.
  3. Place the lemon mixture & remaining ingredients, (except the chops & the flour) in a large stainless steel saucepan.

I made this just as the recipe said. BUT I cooked it in my Instant Pot for 4 minutes, marinade and all. I released the pressure and removed the pork to a hot cast iron skillet with a little oil in it. I browned the chops quickly, removed them from the skillet and dunked them back in the cooking liquid in the Instant Pot. Plopped those babies on a plate with a pile of mashed potatoes and chowed.

I just made this today. I found it good but I think my lemons were very juicy for the lemon was very overpowering. I will make it again but make a few adjustments. I don't know what though maybe some Worcestershire or a little brown sugar? I just don't know. but it isn't bad just needs some TLC I would love some suggestions >)

Tasty. I used white vinegar instead of apple cider b/c I was out. I was also out of thyme. This has a slight lemon undertone to it. I was expecting more of a lemon flavor. It was still very good. The chops came out nice and tender. Even my pork hating DD ate it.
