Perfect Pork Chop Marinade

When it comes to trying new recipes, I find so few that are keepers. This five ingredient pork chop marinade is one of those rare exceptions. It has found a permanent spot in our regular meal rotation because it is so easy AND delicious.

recipe adapted from Passionate Penny Pincher:

1/2 cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
2 teaspoons honey
2 teaspoons garlic powder or onion powder
4-6 bone in pork chops

Mix first four ingredients together and pour over pork chops.

Once the pork chops have soaked in the marinade for a few hours, remove them from the juices and place on a foil lined cookie sheet. I find that cooked soy sauce is so hard to scrub off dishes, so lining with foil is a big help with clean up. Bake in the oven on 375 degrees for 20-30 minutes depending on thickness.

I like to serve these with a green vegetable and baked sweet potatoes. It makes for a really simple, but flavorful meal.

Another thing I like to do with this meal is buy a bunch of pork chops from Costco, divide them up into Ziploc bags, double the marinade, and freeze. Then on a busy day all you have to do is pull them out of the freezer and bake.

  1. oooh, I will pass this on to my best friend who is looking for pork chop recipes. And I am loving baked sweet potatoes these days!

    I agree that so few recipes are keepers. I try new recipes fairly often, but they have to be really tested and loved to make it into my recipe box as a keeper - and even then, I weed out that box occasionally and toss recipes that have turned out not to suit us after all.

  2. Looks wonderful and easy! Thank you for posting.

  3. This sounds really good; we love pork chops in our house.
    One of my favorite "cheater" items is the refrigerated mango salsa that Costco sells. I put chops/ chicken etc in the crock pot and add 1-2 cups of salsa. Cook on low all day.
    Also really delicious when I toss in a can of draibed black beans.
