Normally, I kind of like to mix up my own marinades. (One of my favorites is soy sauce, garlic powder, honey and olive oil.) But, I’m on a clean-out-the-pantry mission in preparation for our move this summer.
As I was digging around, trying to decide how to marinate the pork chops, I came upon a bottle of this stuff:
I was feeling pretty lazy, so I grabbed a gallon-size ziploc bag and dumped half the bottle in it. Then I added the frozen pork chops. I squoze (totally a word) all the air out of the bag and put it on the counter to defrost. (Shhhh… don’t tell the FDA. They’ll come get me.) When I came home for lunch, I put it in the fridge.
For dinner, I grilled the pork chops and paired them with some green beans and brown rice. This marinade was delicious – tangy and a little bit sweet. I think I can recreate it pretty successfully, but I’ll definitely be using the rest of the bottle!
