Home for the month of August after a summer of travels, we are enjoying fresh veggies, and some grilled main dishes. The title of this recipe is appropriate - for this is our favorite grilled pork chop recipe. I do not have a record of where I found this recipe, so am not able to give credit to the source.
We enjoyed it recently, and I used some bone-in pork chops that I had in the freezer, though boneless would work good, as well. It was amazing - so tender and tasty. I love the flavor that the marinade adds to the pork.
