"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!"

"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."

"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."

"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."

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!"
