The BEST Pork Chop Marinade – Only 5 Ingredients!
As much as I love my slow cooker in the winter time (I love it in the summer time too. . .) there's not much better than easy summer grilling nights this time of year.
On busy days, I pull out some meat in the morning, add some marinade (check out my favorite chicken marinade), let it sit in the fridge all day, and hand it to my hubby to throw on the grill at dinnertime.
It's easy, usually pretty healthy, and as long as I stick to basic ingredients and use meat that I've purchased on sale, it's a great way to pinch a few pennies. Add some veggies, a baked potato, or a big salad and dinner is DONE.
Several years ago, we had been traveling and came straight home on a Thursday from traveling for two weeks and headed out Friday to watch baseball all weekend.
But, I thawed out some pork chops and made this simple yummy grilled pork chop marinade.
Five ingredients, less than $5 in meat, and no more than 10 minutes of prep time. And even after traveling I can handle that!
Here's how to get started with this marinade . . .
- Soy Sauce
- Red Wine Vinegar
- Garlic Powder
- Pork Chops
Combine your first 4 ingredients (Soy sauce, red wine vinegar, honey, and garlic powder) in a mixing bowl. Be sure your boneless pork chops are thawed, and then poke a few holes in them with a fork (you could also use bone in pork chops, but we have found the boneless work best for this recipe).
Place the pork chops in a large plastic bag and then pour the marinade ingredients over the chops. Allow to sit for at least 30 minutes.
Remove the pork chops and set your grill to high heat. Grill the marinated pork chops about 5 to 8 minutes per side or until cooked through.
