'I like to grill these chops in summer,' notes field editor Lisa Morman of Minot, North Dakota. 'When I'm entertaining, I often serve them with Parmesan-roasted potatoes and candied carrots.'

I was looking for something that was easy enough to make after a long day at work, yet still tasted great. This definitely fit the bill!!! I love the brown sugar/soy sauce combination - it's like a kicked up version of the same ol' teriyaki or something!!! And, I just marinaded it before work (9 am) and then cooked it up at 6. Dinner was served by 6:45. Easy breezy!!! Thanks Lisa! :) The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was because of the suggested cooking method. In my experience, baking meats uncovered = dry tough meat. :( Especially without any marinade to soak around in!!! The secret, if you don't already know it, is the sear the chops on each side (time depends on how thick the chops are), then baking it COVERED on low heat (I used 350) WITH the marinade for 20 minutes (I used 3/4 inch thick bone-in chops). The picture to the left is the fruit of my "labor". :) Me and my hubby started gnawing on the bone it was so good! Read More

Very Good! Moist and Tender. I used thick chops, so I baked them about 1 hour and I covered them to help keep them moist. A nice easy recipe that tasted great. Read More

Absolutely loved this recipe! It was extremely easy and very good! I did cover the meat with tin foil while baking though - i wanted the meat to stay juicy. My fiance raved about it and thinks i spent a long time in the kitchen to make such a "great dinner" - i would never tell him it only took 5 minutes to mix the marinade and 2 minutes to put it in the oven!! :) Read More

I made this recipe for dinner tonight and it was excellent. I added a tiny bit of orange juice to the marinade. I then followed another reviewers step of searing the pork chops, then putting them in a covered dish in the oven for 20 min. Very tasty. Read More

I used thin-cut pork chops and they ended up too salty, and the rosemary was a bit strong. I had to finish the pork chops myself the rest of the week because my husband didn't want anymore after the first serving. Maybe these would be better with thicker chops, but I did not like the scent or taste enough to try again. Thanks for sharing. Read More

I haven't cooked with rosemary much, so this was a pleasant new dish to me! I let these marinate for the indicated time, but there was just a little too much soy sauce flavor for me. I may scale that back a little next time. Read More

These were great! I only marinated for 2 hours and then cooked them on a Foreman Grill and they still ended up tasty! Read More
