Reviews for Favorite Grilled Pork Chops
"Excellent marinade! I had espresso flavored balsamic and am so happy I used it! It just added another dimension to a great marinade."
"I intended to grill the chops on the outdoor grill, but after marinating them in this fantastic marinade for several hours, it began to storm. I cooked them under the broiler, and when I turned them, I brushed them with the leftover marinade. Absolutely delicious!"
"I didn't have all the ingredients so I used balsamic vinegar, olive oil, teriyaki sauce, minced garlic, and Worcester sauce. My pork chops were unbelievable!!! Will definitely make again!! ! Thanks so much!!!"
"This was so good! I decided to grill 2 pork chops since this was my first time trying this recipe, plus hubby (aka Mr. Picky ) hates marinated meat. I made half the amount of marinade and still had plenty to keep out 1/4 cup to put on meat later. The smell that was still in the air in the kitchen after I made it was making my mouth water! I only had about 3 1/2 hours to marinate which was fine since the chops were only 1/2 inch thick instead of 1". True to form, Mr. Picky did not care for it........yet ate the whole thing. I thought it was delicious. I ended up saving the extra marinade to put on one boneless chicken breast in the future."
"These chops were soooo yummy. Everyone loved em. Excellent flavor! I served this with some creamy ranch mashed potatoes and corn on the cob. Delish!"
"Great tasting recipe! I used vegetable oil instead of olive oil. Also, I didn't have any cayenne pepper so I left that out. Still had plenty of flavor. Perfect for our family cook-out."
"These were good. I thought the flavor was basic, just nothing to set them apart."
"Very easy and extremely delicious"
"Very easy and tasty."
"This tasted sweet and sour. It was very good. I did not marinate it for the full 8 hours because usually for my taste some of these marinated recipes are too strong. So this was perfect for my husband and I. We enjoyed it."
"Nice & moist with good flavor."
"The grilled pork chops I made tonight using this recipe were INCREDIBLE! My 8 year old son declared them "the best meal you've ever made"! My husband loved them too. Just the right amount of flavor and so tender and juicy. This will be my "go to" recipe from now on for grilled pork chops!"
"oh yes i would they were so delicious and moist. i served mine with green beans almondine and cole slaw. they were so good that my family asked for them again in a week. most pork chops that i have eaten on the grill are very tough and hard to chew, not these ones, they were scrumptious."
"We enjoyed this--very tasty and moist."
"Just from looking at the ingredients in the recipe, with all of the salt content, it sounds almost like a brine to me. So I am not so concerned about that since it DOES get discarded. Can't wait to try it, will rate after I do."
"Loved this recipe! I will definitely be making it again."
"Best pork chop ever! I don't normally care for pork chops, but these are crazy good! Try once & this recipe will win you over!"
"Fairly standard marinade, but good. I will be using this one again."
"My husband's Uncle used this marinade for grilled chicken. Great marinade!"
"My husband loved this marinade for his chops. We have tried lots of marinades and discarded the recipe. This one's a keeper!"
"Wpnderful recipe! Everyone loved it. I changed it a little by adding some lemon juice."
"Delicious ... I placed the chops in a rotisserie and they came out perfect, delicious and juicy. Definitely will make again."
"Loved this recipe!"
"I made a slight substitution of sesame oil instead of olive oil. The cayenne pepper really gave a spicy kick to the chops. Served with a rice and brocolli side dish that was also cooked right on the grill. Thanks for sharing!"

"It's great to be so perfect! Never to make a mistake! Unfortunately, we sometimes make a typographical error and don't realize it.Stewie"
"I tried this marinade last night on pork loin and it was delicious! We grilled the pork slowly and it turned out perfect. My husband said that this recipe was a keeper."
"c'mon y'all, this sounds like a wonderful recipe, im gonna try it, i "culd" care less how you spell it. from the sounds of your nit picking you have too much time on your hands."
"The recipe sounds good and easy.The spelling coment on "culd" reminds me of some of the posters on the Weight Watchers board.OOPS!! I misspelled comment. 3 "whacks" with the dictionary."
"Oh, that's TOOooo bad for the spelling police."
"The recipe is great. I "CULD" understand all the comments. To bad for the spelling police. Lighten up, take a chill pill & enjoy life !!!!!!!!!!!!!"
"RE: Grilled Pork Chops...Wish you knew how to spell "CULD"...it is correctly spelled "COULD" Geez, what a joke this all is. No more recipes/comments for me :)"
"You culd use low sodium Worcesthire and soy. There are alternatives to everything. You can even make your own low sodium Worcestshire sauce; recipes are out there."
"Do you realize how much of the marinade simply gets thrown away? There is no way all the sodium from the marinade stays on the pork. Think about it. "
"With 1/2 cup of Worcestershire, and 1/4 cup of soy sauce, this recipe must have over a gram of sodium - half of the recommended daily amount! It ought to come with a warning sign! I just swell up when I eat that much (I've gained as much as 10 lbs. overnight), but people with heart failure could die!"
