Ready In:




  • Combine ingredients in a large Ziploc freezer bag.
  • Remove as much air as possible.
  • Label and freeze.
  • Defrost overnight in the fridge; pork will marinate as it defrosts.
  • To serve, remove chops from bag and place in a non-stick skillet; reserve marinade.
  • Cook for 5 minutes, or until brown, repeat for other side.
  • Add marinade, and reduce heat to medium. Cover and cook for 7 minutes, or until chops are no longer pink in the middle. Transfer pork to a plate and cover. Turn heat to high and whisk for 3-5 minutes until sauce is thick. Spoon over pork.
  • OR cook on heated grill until done, baste with marinade while cooking.

    These were nice pork chops. I did not freeze them, but marinated them all day and grilled them on an indoor grill for dinner. We enjoyed the sauce on these simple chops. Thanks for sharing. Made for Best of 2014 tag.

    Fabulous chops! The sauce consistency (thick) and flavor (awesome) were perfect. I over-cooked the chops, but the sauce more than saved them. I didn't use the freezer method. I just marinated them all day while I was at work. Great flavor. Thank you!

    Oh my!!! Very yummy pork chops!! I followed this as written, although only making 1/2 of the recipe for 2 good size chops, then freezing and thawing as directed. I did make the mistake of not mentioning to DH that there was some honey in the recipe, so some parts of our chops got a little more charred than normal for us, due to the sweet/sugar type of addition to the marinade, but totally my fault. This is a recipe I will make often, so good and flavorful!! Thanks so much for sharing the recipe christianrock_chick!! Made for Spring PAC 2014.


I'm a wife and mom of 4; twin 17-year old daughters, a 11-year old son, and my 3-year old baby boy. My goal is to learn more about cooking with healthier foods and try new recipes! I have food allergies! Not just to a few things, but many things. The worst would be the soy and peanut allergies. I knew a lot things I was allergic to but recently found out about the soy allergies. Soy is in a lot of things and it has been a challenge to avoid it and haven't mastered it yet. It is about impossible to eat out without soy ingredients, so it's been quite the challenge for me. Otherwise, I have annoying food allergies to potatoes, carrots, celery, green beans, strawberries, watermelon, beans, and the list goes on... We love animals and at my small home we have a bunch of small animals: 2 dogs, 1 cat, 3 ferrets, 4 hamsters, 3 mice and 1 leopard gecko. My kids love it. I enjoy spending time with my family, attending events my kids are involved in, going to Christian concerts, church, listening to music, and again, I enjoy writing.
