5 STARS IS A RIP OFF!!! This one truly deserves 10 stars! We just finished dinner and I couldn't wait to get my review in... This was incredible... Really! Absolutely incredible. I used some boneless, thick cut, pork chops which usually come out way too dry for my liking. (Especially when you do them on the grill.) Well, my hubby grilled them and we were OH SO delighted when we bit into that first bite. It was seriously the most moist chop I've ever had! HANDS DOWN!!! What I cannot believe is that just 4 simple ingredients make such a HUGE difference! The only change I made was to use "low sodium" soy sauce, and I marinated it for about 4 hours. These chops were OUTSTANDING!!! I think I'll be buying pork chops more often these days!!!



This is a good basic recipe, but should come with a warning: Do not over marinate with this recipe! Your meat will be tough and salty! I botched it cause I didn't follow the directions. The next time I tried it, I added black pepper and 1tb brown mustard. I marinated chicken instead of beef. I liked it. I think next time I'll try adding some kind of herb like cilantro or rosemary instead of mustard.



What an awesome marinade recipe! Took me 3 minutes to prepare. I marinated 2 butterfly pork chops in it for 1 1/2 hours, then grilled. I couldn't believe how wonderfully they turned out! Thanks so much for the recipe!
