Mahogany Pork Chops

Recipe by  

"These are the best pork chops. My family just loves them. The best part is, the marinade only has 2 ingredients. They are great from the skillet, oven, or off the grill. I like to make these with extra-virgin olive oil, but not needed."

  1. Mix teriyaki sauce and molasses in a bowl until well combined and place pork chops in the mixture; turn chops to coat with marinade. Allow to stand at least 30 minutes (longer for better flavor).
  2. Spray a skillet with cooking spray and place over medium heat. Cook the pork chops until the juices run clear and the chops are browned and no longer pink inside, about 10 minutes per side. An instant-read meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of a chop should read 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).

  • Cook's Note:

This was one of the first ways I ever cooked pork. The teriyaki sauce and the molasses work perfectly together. The longer you marinate the pork, the better it will taste. I like to serve this with lap salad or vegetable fried rice.

I tried baking as suggested -- I did not care for this recipe.

My husband said these were the best pork chops I've ever made! I marinated for 4 hours and cooked on a grill pan, 10 mins per side was perfect. Thanks for a keeper!

Loved the flavor from the molasses/teriyaki sauce...such a simple idea that turned out great! I cooked them on my charcoal grill, basting with the sauce they were marinated in (for 1 hour). This one is definitely a keeper...simple and delish! Served with the Parmesan Roasted Grilled Corn and Simple Grilled Vegetables, both from this site...

This couldn't be any easier to make! I marinated for a few hours in the fridge before cooking. Yummy!

I mixed the marinade for these in the morning and let them marinate all day. I was very disappointed when I took my first bite after pulling them off the grill and I could not taste the marinade AT ALL. The chops were good.

They had a great flavor,and would recommend recipe. But next time I will try and panfry them. I serve them with nice fresh broccoli salad and potato
