Super simple and very flavorful. I added a healthy pinch of red pepper flakes because my husband likes a bit of heat. Don;t overcook the pork chops. My husband removes them from the heat when they are just a couple of degrees below the desired temp. He covers them then lets them rest 10 minutes. They are done to perfection and not overcooked.

I was hoping the flavor of the brown sugar would "make" this recipe, but it was overpowered by the soy sauce :(

We enjoyed these chops. I made no changes to the recipe but would caution people to make sure to not overcook them. We grilled for 4 minutes each side and it was just right. Any longer and we would have had dried out chops.

This recipe is a grilling staple in our home. I use boneless pork chops, and they turn out so moist and delicious!
