I make these tasty chops all the time and my family never tires of them. The secret to these tender chops is overnight marinating. —Jean Neitzel, Beloit, Wisconsin

  • 3/4 cup canola oil
  • 1/3 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup white vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

"I have tried several grilled pork recipes, but this is by far our fave! Enjoy."

"I made this tonight for a,neighborhood dinner, where there were kids present. The pork chops were boneless and very thick, from Costco. Very moist and while I would have enjoyed a kick or spice, there we kids eating too. It received rave reviews. I used cider vinegar and spicy brown mustard in the prep. Served with corn on the cob, Cole slaw and potato salad. Also made a cold blueberry soup which is refreshingly different. Try this marinade. Can't go wrong. Ok. I tried it because submitter was from my home town of Beloit WI. It was awesome. Glad I found it!"

"Perfect weeknight meal! Four year old loved them (she is usually not a big meat fan) The only things I did different was add a little honey and only marinated for 8 hours. Also used boneless chops, that is what I had on hand. I did think there was a little bit too much soy sauce for my liking, but everyone else in the family loved them as is!"

"What an awesome recipe! Don't do pork chops, we use pork tenderloin instead! It was soo good, my daughter had 2 helpings, and the little bit of leftovers has already been claimed by my husband for lunch tomorrow! Had this with the Creamy Coleslaw recipe, and the 3 cheese potatoes recipe, both found here. Perfect meal!"
