"This is an easy and delicious recipe for marinating pork chops, steaks, or chicken. The marinade is prepared in minutes, and the meat can marinate in the refrigerator for up to 12 hours. For a quick dinner, I prepare the marinade in the morning before work then throw them on the grill when I get home."

My family really enjoyed the flavor of this recipe. I made a few changes though, I used 1 1/2 T of chili sauce, one teaspoon of minced garlic and added 2 t of dijon mustard. I cut down on the soy sauce as well to a 1/2 cup and may even cut it down a little further as the one comment was that it was a little salty.
you know i cook with all the ingredients all the time and its a winning combo. In this case it was not. i don;t know why this dish just was not appealing to my taste buds at all. sorry.
This had a great flavor although I tweaked the recipe a little bit. I used fresh minced garlic instead of powder and split the amount needed for soy sauce, half soy sauce half worcestershire sauce(bc i love it)and substituted chili powder instead of chili sauce and marinated for about 4 hours and it was absolutely DELICIOUS!
These pork chops are pretty good, but I think a lot of people might be confused with this recipe... I read through the reviews and most complained of them not being "spicy", but they used the chili powder or chili sauce - the kind you find in the grocery store next to the ketchup which isn't really spicy at all. I'm not sure, but based on the recipe title and the list of ingredients the submitter may have intended for people to chili garlic sauce, you know the kind you find in the Asian section of your grocery store, now that stuff has a bit more kick to it! I cut the recipe in half, used chili garlic sauce, minced garlic instead of powder, added a little sesame oil, and a pinch of ginger. I let them marinate all day and grilled them. They came out very moist and had a nice "spice" to them.
My family loved this Chops recipe. I didn't have chili sauce so I used chili powder instead. It wasn't very spicy, my toddlers were able to eat them. We are making these for dinner this weekend for family coming into town!!
I have been using this recipe for several years and we never get tired of it! I do use minced garlic, use lite La Choy soy sauce,and I double the marinade recipe. I also use a charcol grill, place on hot grill, to get a good sear,then move them to the side where the heat is less, then baste with the marinade often, and close the lid for a few minutes at a time, for tenderness.
I always make enough for two nights dinner and they are just as good the second evening!
I've used this recipe for several years. It's my family's favorite for Pork Chops. The only difference is the recipe I use calls for 1/4 cup soy instead of 3/4 cup. Everything else is exactly the same. I use really thick pork chops from Sam's club. I freeze the chops in a Ziploc bag with the marinade. When need a quick meal, I just thaw and grill.
AWESOME!! I marinated them for 24 hours, but followed recipe exact except a lil' extra chili sauce! Pan fried them with a little cooking spray and they were DELICIOUS! I actually have round 2 marinating for dinner tonight! :)
