- 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/2 cup soy sauce
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 4 bone-in pork loin chops (1 inch thick and 8 ounces each)
- In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar, soy sauce, garlic and pepper. Pour marinade into a large resealable plastic bag. Add pork chops; seal bag and turn to coat. Refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight.
- Drain and discard marinade. Moisten a paper towel with cooking oil; using long-handled tongs, rub on grill rack to coat lightly. Grill chops, covered, over medium heat or broil 4-5 in. from the heat for 4-5 minutes on each side or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°). Let meat stand for 5 minutes before serving. Yield: 4 servings.

Reviews for Simple Marinated Grilled Pork Chops
"Super simple and very flavorful. I added a healthy pinch of red pepper flakes because my husband likes a bit of heat. Don;t overcook the pork chops. My husband removes them from the heat when they are just a couple of degrees below the desired temp. He covers them then lets them rest 10 minutes. They are done to perfection and not overcooked."
"This is truly simple and delicious. This is a go to grilling recipe at our house."
"a nice marinate; for a variation I have added a 6 oz. can of pineapple juice"
"I was hoping the flavor of the brown sugar would "make" this recipe, but it was overpowered by the soy sauce :("
"We enjoyed these chops. I made no changes to the recipe but would caution people to make sure to not overcook them. We grilled for 4 minutes each side and it was just right. Any longer and we would have had dried out chops."
