Directions

  1. Mix the garlic, brown sugar, honey, soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, ketchup, ginger, onion powder, cinnamon, and cayenne pepper together in a bowl. Pour half the mixture into a large plastic zipper bag, and place the pork chops into the marinade. Squeeze the air out of the bag, and seal the bag. Refrigerate 4 to 8 hours, turning occasionally. Refrigerate remaining marinade in the bowl.
  2. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat, and lightly oil the grate.
  3. Remove the pork chops from the plastic bag, and shake excess droplets of liquid from the chops. Discard the marinade from the plastic bag. Grill chops on the preheated grill, basting with the reserved marinade until meat is browned, no longer pink inside, and shows good grill marks, 8 to 10 minutes per side. A meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of a chop should read at least 145 degrees F (63 degrees C).
  4. Pour remaining reserved marinade into a saucepan over medium heat, bring to a boil, and reduce heat to a simmer. Cook the marinade until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes, stirring constantly; serve sauce with chops.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes
  • Teriyaki sauce can replace the Worcestershire sauce with equally great results.
  • If thick enough, the chops can be cut into kabob sizes and marinated in the fridge for about two hours. Put on skewers with veggies of choice, and turn and baste as needed on a medium-temperature grill until done.

These were tasty and my husband & daughter really liked them...however, as written this is a 4 star in my book due to the ginger. The ginger amount really needs to be decreased unless you love ginger. As written, the ginger overpowers. Next time, I will decrease the ginger. With this change they should be perfect.

These chops were very tender, but I thought that the marinade gave them a terrible flavor. It must have been the seasonings that I did not like as the liquid ingredients are quite common in most marinades that I like very much. Sorry. Won't be making this again.

Wow! This was good! I doubled the ingredients for 5 chops. I didn't have soy sauce, so I substituted teriyaki in it's place. Followed the rest of the recipe as stated. Although, I forgot to reserve part of the marinade before putting in the chops, so I just boiled it for 5 minutes before basting the chops on the grill. I let the chops marinate for 8 hours before grilling. These were awsome! BTW... the USDA just revised their recommendations for cooked pork temps. They now recommend cooking pork to an internal temp of 145 degrees, and then letting rest for 3 minutes.

Results were great (even though I didn't have enough Worchestershire sauce as I did 7 times the recipe)! Everyone loved it. I did stir-fry vegetables as one of my side dishes and found that the sauce is actually a great stir-fry sauce!!! Next time I make a stir-fry of any kind I will use this sauce!

This was absolutely fabulous!! I doubled the recipe ingredients and used baby back ribs. I marinated them in half the sauce (as mentioned) and then baked/basted them in the oven at 350. Wow - they were finger licking good! Thanks for a Keeper recipe!

AWESOME! My picky eaters gobbled it up! The child who puts ketchup on everything by-passed the ketchup for the sauce! The meat was tender and juicy. I finally found a recipe for pork that makes the whole family happy. I would like it to be slightly sweeter and little thicker....I will try with personal modifications next time. But overall VERY GOOD! And EASY :)

This was AWESOME!! My husband usually does not care for pork chops but states this is the best marinade ever!! States would be good on steak and shrimp too!! States this tastes like it was prepared in an expensive restaurant!!

4.5 Stars: I cut a 2.5 lb pork loin roast into slices and marinated for 2 days. It was very good, but be careful with the cinnamon. We all agreed a touch more cinnamon would have ruined it.
