Far and away the best marinade I've made including quite a few good marinades from this site. This is in a class by itself. Exceptional flavor that I could easily see using on chicken and beef as well. The marinade was so simple, just assemble and measure a variety of ingredients and grate a little ginger. The only challenge was obtaining all the ingredients as there were a few our rural grocer didn't have that I ordered from Amazon (got free shipping when had enough stuff for $25). The mustard sauce was good though it took a little more easy effort. But it's the marinade that rocked our boat. However, I agree with other reviewers that using both the marinade and the mustard sauce is well worthwhile and a great counterpoint. And the chops were so tender and moist even though we used a good though not high end cut of pork chops. While I added a few things to the pantry that we weren't familiar with, we liked each one and will use them all in this and other dishes. So for those having to add a few items to the pantry, these ingredients are not one trick ponies. For those who are likewise unfamiliar with Hoisin sauce, it is like a thick, not so salty, teriyaki. Of course, the marinade altered it into something immeasurably better. It was a happy learning experience and a dining delight. This is a blue ribbon winner. My husband and I would happily give more stars if such were possible.
