As luck would have it, my grill ran out of gas right when I was about to prepare this dish. So, a lucky accident occurred thats worth another try! I dumped the entire thing, marinade and all, into a deep, stainless saute pan and sauted everything. I lidded the mixture for the first 3/4 of the cooking time (to ensure that the meat was cooked and the veggies soft). Following this, I increased the heat and removed the lid, thus boiling and thickening the remaining juices. The result was delicious! What was originally the marinade became a thick delicious sauce. The pork was ridiculously tender, and the greek flavor was prevalent throughout. The only thing I will be careful about next time is saltiness. I added the soy, as directed, but then also seasoned the dish and mine came out just a bit too salty.

My husband and I really enjoyed this dish! I made it a little differently because we don't have a grill... I marinated pork chops & veggies for about 3 hours and then baked them in the marinade at 325 F. Once they were finished baking, I removed the chops & veggies and thickened the marinade with a little cream and flour until I had a nice sauce. Excellent flavor!!
