Baked Soy Lemon Chops

Recipe by  

"These pork chops are light but very tasty! The longer you marinate your pork, the better it tastes. And it's baked, so a lot of the pork fat is baked right off! Serve with a fresh garden salad and mashed potatoes for a terrific meal."

This is the best pork chop recipe I have ever tried! I used reduced sodium soy sauce and did not have a problem with it overpowering the dish. I used boneless pork chops and it only took about 25 minutes to cook. I baked the chops in the marinade and it was absolutely wonderful! Made brown rice and fresh green beans with it and it turned out to be a very delicious and healthy meal. I can't wait to have it again!

This recipe was much too salty. I suggest cutting the soy sauce in half and marinating for only about 30 minutes to an hour. Otherwise, I liked the combination of ingredients.

I cut the soy sauce in 1/2 and marinated it over night... baked in glass pan with marinade-- basted 3 times, and it was Excellent!! I am not a big meat eater, but we loved it, even passed the recipe along to friends.

Excellent recipe. The best part about this recipe is how easy it is to prepare. My friends gave me many compliments on this main dish. I used 3 fairly thick boneless pork chops and recommend cooking for around 30 minutes. This was a bit too salty, use reduced-sodium soy sauce. Overall, I highly recommend this recipe.

This is so easy and the chops are succulent! To get around the salt issue, I use 1/4 cup of soy sauce, 1/4 cup of water, and squeeze a little extra lemon juice in. Bake them in all the marinade,and voila! My family just loves them!

I happen to love salt, but had a hunch that I too, would find these too salty. For this reason, I played it safe and used 1/4 soy sauce and 1/4 water. Along with that minor tweak, I also let the chops marinate for about 4 hours. I found them to be quite nice and very easy. I think what I liked the most out of this dish was not even the end result, but just the fact that the only ingredient I had to buy was the pork chops. Next time I think I'm going to throw in some onion slices and fresh mushrooms in the dish and let them cook with the chops. Too counteract the saltiness of the pork chops, I paired them with sauteed apples and a light pasta.

I add a teaspoon of fresh minced ginger and call these "Baked Chinese Pork Chops". They are always a hit!

We had these pork chops for dinner last night and they were lovely to look at and easy to prepare. The temperature recommended was a tad too high and the timing too long....I will cook them again next time using a 325 degrees for only 20-25 mins. Very good.
