Greek Pork Chops Recipe

My in-laws taught me a lot about cooking, so any time I come across a great new recipe, like these Greek-inspired pork chops, I enjoy making it for them. These grilled chops are bright, lemony and have become a quick new favorite. —Geri Lipczynski, Oak Lawn, Illinois

"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!"

"I mixed up all the ingredients exactly as recipe states except that I only had 1 ½ lbs of pork tenderloin pieces cut 1 " thick. I pushed them down into a ziplock bag with the marinade in it and was not able to grill the meat until 2 days later. It was EXCELLENT. Hubby loved it and said "if you want to fix this every night it's ok with me". I would next time cut the salt back to maybe ¾ of a teaspoon (instead of 1 t) and I would cut the lemon back to 3 teaspoons (instead of 4). Maybe because I marinated it longer than stated it was just a tad too much lemon and salt. I WILL DEFINETLY make this again and I will let it marinate for 2 days as well. Thanks for the recipe TH"

"These are incredible, so juicy, tender, and delicious. This has become my new favorite way to make chops. I broiled instead of grilled, can't imagine but would bet they are so far over the top if grilled. Restaurant quality fare!!!! :) Thanks for sharing Geri!!!!"

"These are absolutely delicious! My friend who is this tiny thing ate nearly three chops! and her baby was trying to get mine off my plate. Good baked too if you don't feel like taking the snow off the bbq.

I think I served with a side of taziki sauce and roasted potatoes."

"My husband rated these "celebration-worthy." They are fantastic, and the recipe is so easy. Will definitely make over and over again. I used thinner pork chops than the recipe called for. They cooked quickly and remained much juicer than thin pork chops normally do. Wonderful recipe."
