Greek Pork Chops

My in-laws taught me a lot about cooking, so any time I come across a great new recipe, I enjoy making it for them. These bright, lemony chops quickly became a favorite. —Geri Lipczynski, Oak Lawn, Illinois

    This is a really tasty and easy way to marinate pork chops, not too many ingredients. It's more a paste than a traditional marinade, but it keeps the chops super moist. I cooked ours for four minutes in a George Foreman grill, and they came out perfect.

    Oh my gosh these pork chops were the best we’ve ever had. I bought bone in chops because I couldn’t remember what kind to buy, but they cooked up beautifully. I did marinate them for a day and a half. They were juicy & so delicious!! Thank you so much Geri!! ??

    What a great flavor these pork chops have with this marinade. I did add an additional teaspoon of lemon juice. Marinading them overnight is key to a tasty, tender outcome. The seasonings blended very well but did not overcome the flavor of the chop.

    The only change I made to the recipe was to omit mustard, neither of us like it. The flavor of this is great, it's spicy though. If you can handle some heat in your food you'll probably enjoy this. This will be made again, my husband loved it!
