My sisters were teasing me the other day that most of my main dish recipes are cooked on the grill. There is just something about grilled food that I absolutely love. My mom is the same way- I can still remember her going outside in the middle of a snowstorm to throw some chicken breasts on the grill. 🙂 The things we do for good food . . .
I know that pork chops tend to be tough and sometimes not very good when they are cooked, but this marinade leaves them so moist, tender and full of flavor that you will never go back to preparing them any other way.
1/4 cup minced fresh parsley (or 1 Tbsp dried parsley)
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 Tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
4 boneless pork chops (about 1" thick)
In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the first eight ingredients. Once mixed together, add pork chops. Seal bag and refrigerate for at least 8 hours (or overnight- the longer you marinade, the better they are!).
Drain and discard marinade. Grill pork chops, covered, over medium heat for 4-5 minutes on each side or until a thermometer reads 145°.
