“My husband loves pork chops. They're a good source of lean protein and it's easy to change the flavor by using different spices. I created this marinade based on a few I saw in Healthy Cooking.” Jackie Termont - Richmond, Virginia

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons white wine or reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 4 teaspoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon prepared horseradish
  • 1/4 teaspoon dill weed
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 6 boneless pork loin chops (4 ounces each)

Directions

  1. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the vinegar, wine, 1 teaspoon oil, chili powder, horseradish, dill, garlic powder and salt. Add the pork chops; seal bag and turn to coat. Refrigerate for eight hours or overnight, turning occasionally.
