Reviews for Greek Pork Chops
"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!"
"Delicious great taste. I use the leftover for a salad or tacos"
"quick to make up the night before and sit in the fridge all day and so tasty."
"Although it tasted different than I expected, it was good, and I will make it again."
"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"
"Yes, it tastes like steak!!! It's a keeper!"
"Best pork chops EVER!!!~ Theresa"
"PS. With a recipe like this, who needs to go to a restaurant! :)"
"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!!!!"
"It tastes like steak, Delicious."
"These are absolutely delicious! My friend who is this tiny thing ate nearly three chops! and her baby was trying to get mine off my plate. Good baked too if you don't feel like taking the snow off the bbq.I think I served with a side of taziki sauce and roasted potatoes."
"These were so good I don't ever want to have chops any other way! Yum! Great leftover too. Thanks for a great recipe!"
"These are so simple and yet soooooooo tasty!"
"Delicious! My husband grilled the pork tonight and it came out tender and juicy. The flavor was excellent. Definitely a keeper!"
"Good, but I prefer a marinade made with soy sauce (just a personal preference). Thanks!"
"This was good!"
"These pork chops are fantastic! I myself am not a fan of pork chops, but these certainly changed my mind! So easy to prepare and so moist and delicious! I also used rather thin chops, but as stated above, they were perfect, not dry in any way...highly recommend this recipe!!!!!"
"These pork chops are wonderful ! I'll be making these again & again !"
"My husband rated these "celebration-worthy." They are fantastic, and the recipe is so easy. Will definitely make over and over again. I used thinner pork chops than the recipe called for. They cooked quickly and remained much juicer than thin pork chops normally do. Wonderful recipe."
