Marinated Pork Chops

I make these tasty loin chops all the time and my family never tires of them. I whip up this pork chop marinade and let them soak overnight to get them tender. —Jean Neitzel, Beloit, Wisconsin

    This was delicious. I marinated for two nights, b/c I got sick and couldn't cook. It was so tender and flavorful.

    Great grill recipe! Serving with garden summer squash casserole and tomatoes for a great summer evening dinner. Must marinade overnight, worth the time.

    I made these for our next door neighbors the day the husband/ dad had knee surgery. He texted me after, and said they were the best chops he's ever had! Since it is pork, I did use apple cider vinegar...I also cooked them on our grill with Apple wood. This will be my go-to marinade from now on! YUM!!

    I marinated these overnight, and they turned out amazing. I loved the flavor and my family did too! I would highly recommend this recipe.

    I have tried several grilled pork recipes, but this is by far our fave! Enjoy.

    I made this tonight for a,neighborhood dinner, where there were kids present. The pork chops were boneless and very thick, from Costco. Very moist and while I would have enjoyed a kick or spice, there we kids eating too. It received rave reviews. I used cider vinegar and spicy brown mustard in the prep. Served with corn on the cob, Cole slaw and potato salad. Also made a cold blueberry soup which is refreshingly different. Try this marinade. Can't go wrong. Ok. I tried it because submitter was from my home town of Beloit WI. It was awesome. Glad I found it!

    Perfect weeknight meal! Four year old loved them (she is usually not a big meat fan) The only things I did different was add a little honey and only marinated for 8 hours. Also used boneless chops, that is what I had on hand. I did think there was a little bit too much soy sauce for my liking, but everyone else in the family loved them as is!
