  1. Mix ketchup, apple juice, olive oil, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, chili powder, hot sauce, and kosher salt together in a bowl; pour marinade into a resealable plastic bag. Add pork chops to the marinade and seal bag. Marinate for at least 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate.
  3. Remove pork chops from marinade and place on the hot grill; discard used marinade. Cook until pork chops are no longer pink in the center, 5 to 10 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 145 degrees F (65 degrees C).

Tangy Pork Chops Haiku: "Marinate all day, let that flavor seep on in, then I had to bake." Too cold to grill and I couldn't subject my gorgeous, thick Costco pork chops to the George Foreman, so I 1. marinated them in the above ingredients for 8 hrs., 2. quick browned them 3 min./side in cast iron skillet, 3. moved skillet to 350 deg. oven for 20 min. til temp reached 145, and 4. removed and let them rest for 10 more min. b4 serving. O Mmmmmm G, these were really good pork chops; can't wait for spring and to be outside on the patio grilling them!

I didn't have time to marinade, so I just pan seared the pork chops with salt and pepper, then poured the marinade on them like a sauce, so delicious !! Also I was out of apple juice so I substituted half lemon juice and half orange juice.

It was delicious as a marinade. I let the marinade sit for 45 minutes and baked the pork chops at 400 deg for 15 min instead. They were juicy and tender, and delicious.

Really good! I left out the garlic powder, but did sprinkle Weber Steak & Chop seasoning over the tops while grilling. Quick, easy and ingredients that I always have on hand! Due to the time of year, I grilled them on an indoor grill. Thanks for the recipe!
