Marinated Pork Chops Recipe

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
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 5 min. + marinating Grill: 20 min. YIELD:6 servings


  • 3/4 cup canola oil
  • 1/3 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup white vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon prepared mustard
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 6 bone-in pork loin chops (1 inch thick and 8 ounces each)


  • 1. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the first 10 ingredients; add pork. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate overnight.
  • 2. Drain pork, discarding marinade. Grill, covered, over medium heat, for 4-5 minutes on each side or until a thermometer reads 145°. Let meat stand for 5 minutes before serving.
    Freeze option: Freeze uncooked pork in bag with marinade. To use, completely thaw in refrigerator. Grill as directed. Yield: 6 servings.

"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!"

"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!"

"Made these for dinner last night. Put pork chops in the marinade about 10:30 a.m. and grilled them outside around 6:00 p.m. This recipe is a keeper, for sure. Tender, juicy, succulent pork chops that seriously had you wanting to pick up the bone and get after it! Will try on chicken next time........highly recommend!"

"This is one of those pork chop recipes that have you gnawing on the bone after your done eating it. I loved this marinade recipe. I was a little concerned when making it because typical marinates call for a Tbsp or two of honey or molasses. This didn't have any, but I didn't miss it either. Definitely will make this again!"

"Great idea however xtra thick chops on the grill are the best even with only olive oil, kosher salt and pepper. out 3-4 minutes on each side and let them rest covered with foil for 3-4 minutes and then enjoy the juiciest chops ever."

"This was very tasty. However, mine were not very tender. Perhaps I dried them out by cooking on the stove in a cast iron pan. Never grilled pork. I am scared it won't be cooked enough. I did use a thermometer to check inner temp. Suppose I could when I grill too."

"This is a really excellent way to prepare pork chops. I actually used boneless sirloin chops, which were on special at the grocery store, and reduced the grilling time. I mixed up the marinade in the processor and then poured it into the freezer bag with the pork chops, and let it sit at room temp for four hours."
