Very nice flavor. My lemon pepper seasoning has salt in it so 3 Tablespoons along with the light soy sauce would be too much salt for us. I just gently sprinkled each chop with lemon pepper seasoning and placed the chops in a freezer bag and allowed to marinate in the refrigerator all day. Cooking to 145 is just perfect for tender juicy chops. Read More

I marinated the pork for about 10hrs. I wondered how the combination of the flavors would taste together. Was disappointed when it basically only tasted like a meat marinated in soy sauce. I didn't taste any lemon pepper or garlic.Maybe it was because I didn't use "light" soy sauce. Won't make again. Read More

Just as the name implies, this is the best grilled pork chops. They came out tasty and juicy. I marinated them for 3 hours which imparted enough good flavor, but next time I may marinate it a little longer. I also appreciate it when the cook adds the ideal internal temperature in their recipes to make it easier for the novice cook. Thanks for sharing! Read More

This was a wonderful recipe for grilled pork chops! My family said this is one for the recipe books! I did use 3 teaspoons of fresh minced garlic instead of 2. It was just perfect flavor. While marinading I flipped the chops about every half hour and spooned the marinade on top of the exposed side of meat and made sure the spices and garlic sat on the meat to really get in there. I also brushed the meat with the leftover marinade making sure to get the spices and garlic in the meat until the last couple flips. Adjust your grilling time depending on the thickness of your meat. Ours were really thick chops so it took much longer then the recipe stated. Using a digital meat thermometer set to 'Pork' Well Done' helps tremendously to make sure they are not only done (for safety reasons) but you get them off while they are still juicy and tender. These were so juicy and tender!!!! Thanks so much for sharing! Carren Read More
