These sweet and tangy pork chops are flavorful and very easy to make. I pour the marinade over the pork chops in a freezer bag, then freeze them for future use. I take them out of the freezer the night before I want to serve them, and thaw in the refrigerator. By dinner time, they are ready to bake, making a quick and delicious meal!

I really liked this recipe. The marinade was excellent! I only marinated the chops for about an hour then popped everything into the oven for about 20 minutes. The marinade didn't reduce much in the oven so I poured it into a saucepan and boiled for about 5 minutes. It definitely reduced and thickened. As other readers suggested I also added some red pepper flakes to the marinade. Will definitely make again! Read More

I thought the flavor was good and the chops were tender however the sauce did not "reduce" for me at all even after doubling the baking time. I wouldn't recommend this dish. Read More

This is fantastic! I marinate 2 pork chops overnight then grill them. I boil the marinade for 3 minutes so that I can use it to baste the chops while they are on the grill. One suggestion: if you are going to make more than 3 or 4 chops double the recipe. I have used this as a marinade several times... it makes a wonderful pork chop! Read More

I also added some red pepper flakes to the sauce to give it some heat. Then I added a few extra cloves of garlic. It went over very well but I think it would have been better if allowed to marinate overnight. Read More

My husband said these were the best pork chops he ever ate. I love the marinade....will try it also on chicken and maybe even on pasta salad! I cooked boneless pork chops for 35 min on 425 degrees I used 1/2 tsp of jarred minced garlic instead of a fresh clove Read More

Good marinade I left it overnight in the fridge and the meat was very tender. On the BBQ the marinade does burn easily and is hard to cleanup. Read More

This was very tasty - better than I expected but not totally awesome. I made it exactly as written except for extending the baking time past 30 minutes. The sauce was a little thin but nothing bad. It had a good teriyaki-sauce kind of flavor though I don't know if such small amounts of ground ginger and black pepper made a noticeable difference. Overall this recipe is worth making again sometime - I'll just bake it even longer. Read More
