This is a variation of the 'Tangy Chicken' recipe here on Allrecipes.com. It's fast and easy. It makes the chops very juicy and tender. You may be put off by the lemon, but you really don't taste it that strong, it's overpowered by the Worcestershire Sauce. It seems the acid in the lemon helps make the more meat tender and helps the flavor soak in. The garlic is just a hint also, not too strong at all! Garlic powder could also be used.

Directions

  1. Combine the pork chops, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, vegetable oil, and garlic in a large resealable plastic bag. Squeeze as much excess air from bag as possible. Marinate in refrigerator 4 to 24 hours.
  2. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat, and lightly oil the grate.
  3. Remove the pork chops from the marinade directly to the grill. Discard the marinade.
  4. Cook until the pork is no longer pink in the center, about 5 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 145 degrees F (63 degrees C).

Wow, I am always looking for ways to cook pork chops that don't dry them out...I don't know if it was the lemon that tenderized the meat, but this simple recipe was just delicious, I only added a little cracked pepper!!!

This was an awesome dish. I use pork loin fillets and EVOO instead of vegetable oil. Did use the garlic and marinated for around 24 hours. It was by far one of the best recipes I have used lately.

by far, the most tender and tasty chops we have ever had. I marinated them for about 7 hours, and because the chops were fairly thick and boneless, i ended up grilling them about 6 minutes on each side. Super flavor, thanks doonze for the best pork chop recipe ever. this recipe was perfect for 4 adults. The garlic was optional, i used it and glad I did.
