Here is a great modification to this recipe if you don't have a grill or you have no time to cook. Preheat the oven to 350; spray a pan with Pam; throw in some boneless pork chops; top with the brown sugar, butter and soy sauce and bake for about 20 minutes. The kids loved them!

Too sweet for our spice fans so I modified as follows. I wanted a quick marinade so I deleted the salt, water and cornstarch, halved the oil and increased the soy sauce to 4 tablespoons. Then I heated the sauce to dissolve the sugar and poured it over the chops to marinate for 30 minutes. We grilled for no more than 10 minutes and the reviews from my team were 'can we have this again next week?' Not sweet or salty but just very flavorful and juicy! Thanks! Follow-up: I forgot about the modifications I made last time (notes above) and made recipe exactly as written. Much better WITH the modifications unless you really like sweet!



Awesome recipe- I cooked this tonight for company. I followed the recipe exact for the sauce- but I used both chicken & chops and it was great on both. I also like to ensure that the meat comes out tender, so I marinated it in equal parts apple cider vinegar & apple juice. Followed the advice of another review & served this with "Cinnamon Rice with Apples" - another great recipe.
