Tasty pork chop marinade

    4 hours 30 min

    This is a beautiful marinade that is quick and easy to make. I always found that pork chops were really hard to keep moist unless a lot of time and effort was spent monitoring cooking. After trial and error I found that this recipe was perfect, no effort required. The marinating time is optional, but it gives a great taste. If you don't have the time, the pork chops will still taste great just from being cooked in the juices.

    Makes: 5 pork chops

    • 60ml lemon juice
    • 60ml honey
    • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
    • 1 tablespoon water
    • 3 garlic cloves, chopped
    • 1 tablespoon mixed herbs

    • 6 pork chops

    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Extra time:4hr marinating  ›  Ready in:4hr30min 

    1. Put lemon juice and honey in a mixing bowl and stir together. Add soy sauce and water and continue to mix.
    2. After fairly blended together transfer mixture to a freezer bag.
    3. When in freezer bag add garlic, mixed herbs and salt. Give the bag a shake and add each pork chop into the bag.
    4. The bag should look quite full and all pork chops should be fairly covered in the marinade. Once satisfied, seal the bag and place in container to rest in the fridge for 1 to 10 hours. I usually leave it for 4 hours.
    5. Preheat the oven to 200 C / Gas 6.
    6. Take chops out of fridge and place onto baking pan lined with aluminium foil. When all the pork chops are placed on pan, pour the remaining marinade over the chops and wrap another sheet of foil over the top to seal the pork chops in like a parcel.
    7. Bake until no longer pink at the centre, 17 to 20 minutes. Serve for effortless tasty, moist pork chops!

    Took shortcuts. Use a roasting bag for marinading and then roast in bag , saves on foil and washing up !!  -  31 May 2011
