Excellent! Everyone loved this. Went great with sides of "Grilled Sweet Potatoes with Apples" and "Grilled Portobello Mushrooms." I couldn't find Garam Masala in our area so went on the internet and found a "recipe" for it; Luckily I had all of the ingredients to make this "India Spice Blend" in my spice cabinet. Read More

So good! I was intrigued by the blend of flavors when I saw this recipe but I wasn't it expecting it to be so delicious. I even messed up by adding the garam masala to the marinade and it still came out great. I marinated for about 6 hours. Really good served with steamed veggies and brown rice. I will make this again thank you:) Read More

These were different and good. Next time I'd probably add a little olive oil to the marinade as pork chops dry out so easily. Read More

The chops turned out tender and juicy I marinated them for about 3 hours. I was not thrilled with the garam masala the cloves seemed to be a bit much for us next time I will use less. Good recipe a keeper! Read More

Very good pork chops! We buy pork chops at Costco and they are generally extremely thick so I cut them in half. I guess I cut these a little too thin bc bf complained they were a bit too done. But that would be our fault not the fault of the recipe. I marinated this overnight then flipped so the other side could be in the marinade. Bf grilled these when he got home tonight. I made a couple of changes: I used minced garlic (didn't feel like making garlic paste) and I don't have ginger paste so I used dried ginger. I also added some garam masala to the marinade itself mostly bc I thought I might forget to sprinkle it on the chops. I didn't grill them; bf did while I walked the dog so they didn't get sprinkled with the garam masala. So I'm glad I added that to the marinade. Very nice flavor and it's enough marinade if you flip the chops but not too much so you have to throw out a lot of liquid. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

I've had this in my recipe box for quite a while but wasn't too sure about the combination of ingredients. I have to admit that this was way better than I thought it would be! I followed the recipe exactly and thought the flavors blended well together. I did the chops on the Foreman grill - they cam out moist and flavorful. Thanks! Read More

This was a GREAT recipe! The pork chops were absolutely succulent! The only other pork chop recipe that I've liked better was one that was baked with apples. I accidentally marinated the pork for three days so it was a little salty but very tender and juicy. I also don't have a grill so I broiled it on low for about fifteen minutes and it turned out perfectly. Definitely a recipe that I'll use again! Read More
