What's a good marinade for pork chops?

I am defrosting a couple of boneless pork chops for wife and I to feast on tomorrow. Does anyone have a good marinade recipe? Don't be mad but I think I am going to cook them on the George Foreman

You could take a look at the recipes on the baby back ribs thread a few slots down on this list...

Loin chops are not that far removed from back ribs, so the flavourings would work about the same, just "tweak" to the method you select...

Tastes are different all over the continent (let alone the planet!), and there's always something to be saif for trying something "new" that looks "good" or within capability, or contents of the spice rack....

Do let us know what you decided, and how it turns out!

kitchenelf, you think I could use skillet for making these? I don't have grill. Limited in appliances. Thanks Don't you think I could fry them same amount of time as you do on the grill? Have to be careful with pork.

Vanilla Balsamic Glaze

I mix together (I don't measure, sorry!)
Vanilla--probably about 1 tsp
Balsamic Vinegar--about 1/3 of a cup
Honey--just a really good squeeze of the bottle

Whisk it all together, set aside about 1/3 of mixture. Place chops in other 2/3 of mixture and let marinate, covered in fridge, for an hour or so. You can do these on the George Foreman, basting occasionally with the reserved marinade.

Leftovers are great sliced on a salad and served with a vinaigrette.

Sounds good PA. I never seem loss for different meals anymore. Since my kids got computer, I never get all my work done. Getting meal prepared is high priority hence my attention to the board. Thanks.

I like to mix Worchestershire sauce and A1, about 3 or 4 to 1. I always taste it to see if it's a the proper mixture, and will add one or the other to get the taste I want.

Then add garlic to taste. I like a good dried minced garlic like we can get down at Planters in KC. Doesn't seem to absorb as quick and gives it a better 'seeped' in taste.

I've used this marinade on beef roasts and pork chops. Works a little better on beef, IMHO, but an okay marinade. A bit on the sour side to me, but not so much as to turn me off to it.

Pork goes so well with so many different flavors. Fruit, especially fruit with a bit of a bit, such as pineapple, apple, orange, cherry, mang, etc. goes very well with pork and can me used to make a wonderful marinade.

Or you could go the oriental rout with a teryaki maridande, or brine them, them coat with bread crumbs and shredded cocanut.

You can do equally well with a bit of chili powder, some brown sugar (or Splenda and mollases), onion, garlic, and bay leaf.

Pork is great with cloves and honey, or citrus and honey, or ginger and honey,etc.

It's also great when rubbed with sage, cayenne pepper, garlic, and onion.

Though I detest the flavor of mint, I believe pork would go very well with mint.

I know a pro-chef that marinated pork cutlets in root bear. I've seen other recipes that do the same with cola, or 7-UP, Orange Crush, etc. The citrus oils in these products work very well with pork (of course the root beer is flavored with either wintergreen or sasafrass root).

It just depends what you are in the mood for. Pick one of these ideas, or one of the flavorings from the previous posts. They are all good.
