These chops are so simple to prepare yet taste really special. Honey, lemon and garlic are a classic combination that fits perfectly with grilled pork. I like that I can marinate the chops the night before or even in the morning. Then in the evening, I just start up the grill and dinner's ready in no time.—Helen Carpenter, Albuquerque, New Mexico
