Grilled Pork Chops with Honey-Soy Marinade
1 tablespoon packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon melted butter or margarine
1 tablespoon olive or vegetable oil
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
4 bone-in pork loin chops, 1 inch or thicker (boneless chops can be used)
In a small bowl, mix all ingredients except the pork loin chops.
Place pork chops in a shallow glass or plastic dish, pour marinade over chops. Cover and refrigerate at least 30 minutes, but no longer than 1 hour.
Preheat grill to medium high heat – lightly oil grill grate to avoid sticking.
Remove chops from marinade and allow them to come to room temperature; reserve marinade. Place chops on grill; cover and grill 6 to 7 minutes on a side, or until internal temperature is 145 degrees F. Brush two or three times with marinade throughout the grilling process. When finished, discard any remaining marinade.
Allow pork chops to rest 5 minutes before serving.
