Grilled Pork Chop Marinade

Marinating meat before grilling it has two purposes. First, it gives it flavor , second it tenderizes the meat. Grilled Pork Chop Marinade does an excellent job of doing both.

The massive pork chops my husband brought home (they were the size of steaks) were marinated overnight. The chops were grilled for about 15 minutes. The flavor of the marinade plus the flavor the grill gave the chops was excellent. They were tender, juicy and delicious.

There are a couple of things you want to remember when marinating meat.

  •  Always marinate meat in the refrigerator, marinating at room temperature runs the risk of harmful bacteria forming while the meat marinades.
  • After the meat has marinated, allow the meat to come to room temperature before placing on the grill. My husband is a stickler for this one, the meat is always room temperature before it hits the grill.
  • Never marinade meat in a steel bowl or ceramic bowl. According to Everything2 the acid in the marinade can react with a metal bowl, both damaging the bowl and giving the meat a metal flavor. Acids can also react with a ceramic bowl, potentially leaking the glaze of the bowl into the marinade. This is particularly dangerous if the glaze contains lead. Always use a clear glass bowl to marinade.

Place the pork chops in a plastic ziplock bag big enough to hold the chops and marinade. Add the marinade to the plastic bag.  Zip it almost closed, squeeze all the air out of the bag and completely close the bag. Place the bag in the refrigerator and marinate chops overnight, turning the bag often to make sure all the surfaces of the chops are covered in the marinade.
