Delicious Tangy Pork Chops


"This is a variation of the 'Tangy Chicken' recipe here on It's fast and easy. It makes the chops very juicy and tender. You may be put off by the lemon, but you really don't taste it that strong, it's overpowered by the Worcestershire Sauce. It seems the acid in the lemon helps make the more meat tender and helps the flavor soak in. The garlic is just a hint also, not too strong at all! Garlic powder could also be used."

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Combine the pork chops, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, vegetable oil, and garlic in a large resealable plastic bag. Squeeze as much excess air from bag as possible. Marinate in refrigerator 4 to 24 hours.
  2. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat, and lightly oil the grate.
  3. Remove the pork chops from the marinade directly to the grill. Discard the marinade.
  4. Cook until the pork is no longer pink in the center, about 5 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 145 degrees F (63 degrees C).


  • Cook's Note:
  • (Optional Cooking method) They may also be baked covered in the oven for 25-30 minutes at 350 degrees, or until internal temperature reaches 160 degrees (70 degrees C). Some marinade can be retained and used when baking if desired.
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

by far, the most tender and tasty chops we have ever had. I marinated them for about 7 hours, and because the chops were fairly thick and boneless, i ended up grilling them about 6 minutes on e...

This a very good, simple marinade that takes about a minute to put together. It enhances the flavor of the pork chop without covering it. As a matter of fact, next time we use this recipe I thin...

Super easy and tasted great! :)

I made this last night for dinner and my family loved it. I will definitely make it again. The only thing I changed was I used canola oil and garlic powder.

Loved this flavour packed dish. I used Pork fillets in place of chops and will be making this often.

These were very good! I tried two different marinades on 2 different chops, they were both very good. I marinated over 24 hrs also. Moist and delicious! Would make again.

Did this for tonight. It sat in the marinade for 6-7 hours and was thrown on the grill. It turned out amazing! The entire family enjoyed it! Next time I will leaving it in the marinade for a ful...
