- 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
"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."
"I dont really care for pork but I loved this and so did everyone else in the family!"
