Easy Marinated Pork Chops

Thursday Night's dinner:  

 Marinated Pork Chops 
with brown rice and broccoli 

This is an easy weeknight meal.  Bill was home on Thursday and prepped this marinade with the chops and we grilled them inside on our grill. It would work better to grill on an outdoor grill or if you had better venting in your kitchen than I do.  The chops were great and the marinade is very versatile for all kinds of meat. But I would just suggest lots of air flow in the house.  Enjoy. 


1/2 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 Tbls lemon juice
1 Tbls vegetable oil
1 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp garlic powder
6 boneless or bone in pork chops


1. Mix soy sauce, brown sugar, lemon juice, oil, ginger, garlic in a gallon ziploc bag.  Take pork chops and pierce with a fork several times.  Put chops in ziploc and leave in fridge for at least 4 hrs ( overnight is ideal ) 

2. Take pork chops out of fridge and bring to room temperature. Heat grill to med-high heat. 

3. Grill.  My grill took about 10 mins to cook, check at 5 mins. Pork should be firm and have little give when.  Wait until juice run clear.  

4. Let rest 5 mins and serve.  I served with brown rice and steamed broccoli and side salad.  The whole meal took about 30 mins from oven to dinner table.
