Zesty Grilled Chops

These pork chops make a quick company dish. Our family enjoys them on the grill, as the summer weather in our part of the country is hot and muggy. In the wintertime, they're wonderful prepared in the broiler.

Prep Time

        Prep and cook time: 10 minutes plus another 10 minutes Marinating Grill
        Yield: Serves 6


    •    1 tbsp chili sauce
    •    3/4 cup soy sauce
    •    1 tbsp brown sugar
    •    1/4 cup lemon juice
    •    1 garlic clove, minced
    •    6 bone-in pork loin or rib chops (about 1-1/2 inches thick)


  1. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine first five ingredients; reserve 1/3 cup mixture for brushing over chops. Add pork chops to bag; seal bag and turn to coat. Refrigerate overnight.
  2. Drain pork, discarding marinade. Grill chops, covered, over medium heat or broil 4 in. from heat until a thermometer reads 145°, 6-8 minutes per side. Brush occasionally with reserved soy mixture during the last 5 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
