    Very flavorful pork recipe. We loved the lime flavor; not too tart. Make sure you marinade for at least 8 hours to get full flavor.

    This marinade imparts a lot of flavor. The only change I made was to reduce the lime juice by half and I used bone in pork chops thus the cooking time was a bit longer. My husband is a huge fan of balsamic vinegar so I knew he would love these.

    This was decent but I thought the lime flavor was a little too overpowering.

    Awesome marinade, very tasty! I tried this on pork chops, then on a steak. I've made it 4 times since trying it.

    I used Splenda rather than the sugar. It was wonderful. Be careful not to overcook.

    Our whole family loved these! I was out of balsamic vinegar so had to subst. red wine vinegar w/ honey but they were still great! Super simple to make- i recommend leaving in marinade overnight. Will certainly make these again!

    Use Splenda instead of sugar. Same taste, lower sugar content.
