I start preparing this entree the night before I plan to grill it. It's a fabulous marinade with a unique flavor, and is of the only ways our family eats pork chops. —Erica Svejda, Janesville, Wisconsin

"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!"

"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."

"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."
