  • Ready In

  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.


  • 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.

This is fabulous. I make these chops several times a month. They have been a hit with family and guests alike. I grill pineapple slices to serve alongside these tasty chops.

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.
