Honey Citrus Chops Recipe

I often serve this pork with fried rice and Chinese-style vegetables. It also makes a great appetizer by itself. Folks have fun dipping the nuggets into the two homemade sauces.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 5 min. + marinating Grill: 10 min. YIELD:6 servings

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup lemon-lime soda
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 6 boneless pork loin chops (6 ounces each)

Directions

  • 1. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the soda, soy sauce and honey; add pork. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate overnight, turning occasionally.
  • 2. Drain and discard marinade. Using long-handled tongs, moisten a paper towel with cooking oil and lightly coat the grill rack. Grill, covered, over medium heat or broil 4 in. from the heat for 4-5 minutes on each side or until a meat thermometer reads 160°. Yield: 6 servings.
