Ginger Soy Pork Chops Recipe

"As pork raisers, we've served pork many different ways, and this is our absolute favorite," notes Alice Hermes of Glen Ullin, North Dakota. "One of our daughters went to state competition in 4-H when she entered these tangy chops seasoned with soy sauce, ginger and garlic."
