Boneless pork chop marinade

I just tried this marinade last night and I have to say I was impressed. I altered a few things to make it better for this recipe even though it was good the way it was! I will say it was definitely not lacking in flavor. It tastes along the lines of honey garlic wing sauce only with a hint of soy. If you don’t like any of those flavors, skip this recipe. I get bored with chicken all the time so I wanted to try a different meat on the grill since we had a beautiful day yesterday! If pork isn’t your favorite but your other family members enjoy it, this marinade does mask the taste of the pork so you should still have a good meal. Pork isn’t the leanest of all the meats, so if your fat allowance is low, maybe try it with chicken breast (I haven’t tried this yet, but I will). If you want to give it a shot, the recipe is below.

 

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup of liquid aminos (healthier soy sauce alternative found in grocery store near soy sauce)
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup red cooking wine
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1/2 tsp of seasoned salt
  • 1 tsp of minced dry onion
  • 4 boneless center cut pork chops

 

Directions:

  1. Mix together in a bowl aminos, brown sugar, wine, garlic, salt, onions
  2. Salt and pepper both sides of the pork with salt and pepper (easy on the salt) and place in a plastic bag or dish
  3. Pour marinade over pork or into the plastic bag and seal
  4. Marinate in fridge for at least an hour. I marinated for the entire day and the pork was full of flavor

 

I paired this with asparagus on the grill with spray butter and garlic and it was great! It was a lean meal that was full of flavor. Let me know what you think if you give it a try!
