In need of marinade for a Pork Chop recipe!

I am implementing a new recipe for Pork Chops with sweet potatoes, apples, onions and raisins and am searching for a mariande that would be good with this. Maybe something with liquid smoke? Any help would be appreciated, I don't eat pork and have never in my life had a pork chop so I'm not real sure what the pork flavor is. Thanks ya'll!

You'll never find out either, if you marinate it
If you are cooking it in the same dish with everything you mentioned, I would think it would pick up flavor enough, but I like my chops with little to nothing on them.

For a bit of flavor I mix some olive oil, fresh garlic minced, fresh thyme, fresh rosemary if you want but for some reason just the thyme seems better for what you want, salt and pepper. I use thick cut bone in pork chops and marinate overnight - two days doesn't hurt anything. Put in ziplock bags and occasionally just redistribute the olive oil by massaging into the pork from outside of the bag..

No marinade for pork chops. There was a long thread here about this very subject a while ago try to search for it. But simple answer is you do not need marinade. Pork is tender enough by it self. Now the other question, why would you cook something you've never eaten in your life?

Why wouldn't you? Isn't that part of the fun of exploring and learning new foods?

I'm actually a cook at a small restaurant inside of a grocery store. My boss puts together most of the menu, but he doesn't eat pork either. I've been a vegetarian for 5 years and plan on being one for quite some time so I won't be doing any sampling of the dish. I was thinking of a marinade because the meat stays fresher longer in a marinade the way we store it. The olive oil salt pepper and thyme sounds great kitchenelf! Only thing is I hate preparing thyme! Oh well if it tastes good it's worth it!
