    These are very good pork chops that have a nice lemon flavor with a hint of licorice. I put the water, sugar, and kosher salt in a zipper bag and shook vigorously. Added the remaining ingredients and marinated for about 3 1/2 hours. Forgot to tell DH to add the pepper before grilling but didnt miss it. Will make these again!

    We love this recipe, too! And make it frequently. The pork always comes out moist and savory.

    This was wonderful! My husband was quite uncertain because I never grill pork chops, always make them the same old way in the electric fry pan (which is delicious but is definitely a "winter recipe"). This marinade made the pork so moist & delicious! I did marinade it longer (6 or 7 hours) because I did it in the morning before I got started with my day - and it worked just fine! I will include this in my regular summer recipe collection! thanks!
