Greek Pork Chops

My in-laws taught me a lot about cooking, so any time I come across a great new recipe, I enjoy making it for them. These bright, lemony chops quickly became a favorite. —Geri Lipczynski, Oak Lawn, Illinois

    What a great flavor these pork chops have with this marinade. I did add an additional teaspoon of lemon juice. Marinading them overnight is key to a tasty, tender outcome. The seasonings blended very well but did not overcome the flavor of the chop.

    The only change I made to the recipe was to omit mustard, neither of us like it. The flavor of this is great, it's spicy though. If you can handle some heat in your food you'll probably enjoy this. This will be made again, my husband loved it!

    Excellent Greek inspired recipe. I had 5 chops- 1/2 inch bone in Pork chops. My Husband does not eat onion so I used 2 Tsp. of garlic powder instead of one tsp. each of onion and garlic powder . I cut the pepper down to 1/8 tsp to suit my Family's tastes and omitted the mustard powder as I did not have it on hand. Wonderfully moist and flavorful. A keeper recipe.

    These pork chops came out absolutely heavenly. They were full of beautiful flavor. I don't believe the recipe makes enough marinade and I had doubled it right off the start. I think that would have been fine for 4 pork chops, but I was making something like 8 chops, so I had to quadruple the marinade recipe. Other than that easy fix, so delicious!

    Although it tasted different than I expected, it was good, and I will make it again.
