"My sister gave me the recipe for this easy five-ingredient marinade," writes Bernice Germann of Napoleon, Ohio. "It keeps the meat so moist and it's the only way my husband wants his pork chops prepared."
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 5 min. + marinating Grill: 10 min.
MAKES:6 servings

We loved the flavor of these grilled chops. We had bought bulk chops that turned out to be not so great of a deal - they were really tough. I marinated them in this sauce and although a better quality chop would have been better, they came up much more tender than the first batch we cooked up and the flavor was excellent. Definitely a keeper. We served with rice and Asian blend vegetables and the meal was a hit.

I used 1 in thick pork chops for this, and upped the chili sauce just a tad and they were so juicy!
