    These are so simple, yet so good. You can cook them on the barbecue, under the grill on a griddle pan.

    Making this now, marinade very straight forward, added some lemon zest. Mash, carrots and spinach to go with.  -  26 Jun 2016


    Hi Ya, and thanks for a new recipe for an old fave! There is, however, one teeny weeny change I'd suggest may be worth your consideration. (Did this bloke eat a dictionary?). Once you have your chops and marinade in the bag, so to speak, take a leaf out of the Japanese itame's cookbook. Massage it! Honest, every half hour, give it a gentle rub on both sides, turn it and put it back in the 'fridge. Should cut your marinating time by four fifths, or give you tons more flavour (sorry) for your bucks. Always good. Try it, it really works! Itame? oh yes, that's a Japanese chef.  -  26 May 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is an awesome recipe. Followed it to a "t" except it ended up marinating for close to 48 hours. The key to making killer pork chops on the grill is not to over cook them. One inch thick chops over medium heat = 7 minutes first side then 5 minutes second. After you've given them a few minutes to rest (7-10 min.) cut the thickest part of one chop and ensure the jucies are clear.  -  29 May 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
