"This honey-based marinade is an excellent way to add flavor to grilled pork chops. This is also an excellent recipe for grilled pork tenderloin."

  • Ready In

  1. Whisk honey, soy sauce, lemon juice, and garlic together in a bowl until marinade is smooth. Pour marinade into a resealable plastic bag, reserving about 1/4 of the marinade in a bowl for basting. Add the pork chops to the bag, coat with the marinade, squeeze bag to remove excess air, and seal the bag; marinate in the refrigerator at least 5 hours.
  2. Preheat grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate. Remove pork chops from the marinade, and shake off excess. Discard remaining marinade.
  3. Grill pork chops on the preheated grill, basting with the reserved marinade during the last few minutes, until pork chops are cooked through, 15 to 20 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 145 degrees F (63 degrees C). Let pork chops rest for 3 minutes before serving.

My wife made pork loins with this recipe, using my bees honey, and I like to have made myself sick eating it. It was by far the best pork she has ever cooked, and she is a great cook! I wouldn...

I made this for dinner tonight, didn't change a thing it is one of the best marinades I've had for pork. A perfect dish for a company dinner. Thanks for sharing.

I used this as a marinade on a pork tenderloin, which I cooked in the oven due to rain. Absolutely fantastic! I added some fresh thyme and rosemary to it as well. Might just be my new favorite...

They were wonderful! I could have eaten two or even three of these babies! I marinaded all day. When grilled I love how they develop a little carmelization on them likely because of the honey....

Excellent marinade. Probably one of the best!

i made these and love them! I made a little extra marinade. While the pork chops were grilling, I cooked the marinade down and served it as a sauce over rice. Yummm!

Used the marinade on a pork tenderloin and grilled it. It was AWESOME. A little sweet, a little salty, and didn't scorch on the grill. Will be using this marinade again on all kinds of pork.

So simple and effective. An overly honest friend told me it was the best pork chop he'd ever eaten, so it must be good.

tried this out last night loved it. I cut back here and there because I cooked 4 chops and I'm the only 1 in the house. will be fixing this again
