Barbecued Pork Chops with Rosemary Lemon Marinade Recipe

Barbecued Pork Chops with Rosemary Lemon Marinade Recipe

When it comes to cooking, I'm not "chicken" about experimenting—I discovered this mouthwatering marinade in a poultry cookbook and decided to try it with pork chops. My family's glad—it's become a favorite! Don't be bashful about basting a pork roast or ribs with the marinade, either...I did, and I discovered two more family-favorite taste treats.—Peggy Gwillim, Strasbourg, Saskatchewan
