My husband loved these tender, tasty, juicy chops. You have to plan ahead to marinate these chops, but they were worth it. Many loin chops are dry and overcooked, this recipe overcame that. Pork is obviously an Iowa favorite, and we’ll have these again!
Zesty Grilled Chops
3/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 tablespoon chili sauce
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 Teaspoon Garlic -- minced (1 clove)
6 Pork Loin or Rib Chops (about 1-1 1/2 Inches Thick) -- 6 ounces
In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the first five ingredients; set aside 1/3 cup for basting. Add pork chops. Seal bag and refrigerate overnight.
Drain and discard marinade. Grill chops, covered, over medium heat or broil 4 in. from the heat for 10-16 minutes or until a meat thermometer reads 145°, turning once. Brush occasionally with reserved marinade. Let rest 3 minutes before serving.
Yield: 6 servings.
