"I made these for our next door neighbors the day the husband/ dad had knee surgery. He texted me after, and said they were the best chops he's ever had! Since it is pork, I did use apple cider vinegar...I also cooked them on our grill with Apple wood. This will be my go-to marinade from now on! YUM!!"

"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!"
