Simple Marinated Grilled Pork Chops Recipe

Simple Marinated Grilled Pork Chops Recipe

This marinade is so simple that I use it on all kinds of meat. For a more robust flavor, let the meat marinate in the refrigerator overnight. —Lori Daniels, Beverly, West Virginia
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. + marinating Grill: 10 min. YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 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)

Directions

  • 1. 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.
  • 2. 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.
