My in-laws taught me a lot about cooking, so any time I come across a great new recipe, like these Greek-inspired pork chops, I enjoy making it for them. These grilled chops are bright, lemony and have become a quick new favorite. —Geri Lipczynski, Oak Lawn, Illinois

"These pork chops came out absolutely heavenly. They were full of beautiful flavor. I don't believe the recipe makes enough marinade and I had doubled it right off the start. I think that would have been fine for 4 pork chops, but I was making something like 8 chops, so I had to quadruple the marinade recipe. Other than that easy fix, so delicious!"

"I mixed up all the ingredients exactly as recipe states except that I only had 1 ½ lbs of pork tenderloin pieces cut 1 " thick. I pushed them down into a ziplock bag with the marinade in it and was not able to grill the meat until 2 days later. It was EXCELLENT. Hubby loved it and said "if you want to fix this every night it's ok with me". I would next time cut the salt back to maybe ¾ of a teaspoon (instead of 1 t) and I would cut the lemon back to 3 teaspoons (instead of 4). Maybe because I marinated it longer than stated it was just a tad too much lemon and salt. I WILL DEFINETLY make this again and I will let it marinate for 2 days as well. Thanks for the recipe TH"

"These are incredible, so juicy, tender, and delicious. This has become my new favorite way to make chops. I broiled instead of grilled, can't imagine but would bet they are so far over the top if grilled. Restaurant quality fare!!!! :) Thanks for sharing Geri!!!!"
