Marinated Boneless Pork Chops

As the summer strolls along, there is so much to be thankful for.  The simple pleasure of a good cup of coffee comes to mind, a walk with your doggy, a simple delicious ice cream cone, a good classic old movie, sharing laughter with your kids.  These pleasures might seem small…but these are the ones that really count.  Thank Him each day for the small pleasures.


6 boneless pork chops (about one inch thickness)

For the Marinade:

1 tsp. sugar
1 tsp. vinegar
½ tsp. dried oregano
½ tsp. salt
½ tsp. ground black pepper
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tsp. sesame oil
½ tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. lime juice

Place all of the ingredients for the marinade in a small bowl and mix.

Place the pork chops in a container; add the marinade and make sure each pork chop in covered with the marinade.

Place in the refrigerator for at least one hour or up to over night.

Heat a large frying pan with 2 tablespoons of olive oil.  Add the pork chops; do not over crowd the pan.  Cook the pork chops about 4 minutes on each side or until the juices run clear.  Do not overcook ….the pork will be very dry.

Enjoy with Love,

  15. Catherine, I love marinated fried pork chops...and this marinade sounds really tasty! Most restaurants overcook pork chops so we usually marinade and cook them at home. It would be nice for road trippers like us if restaurants could get it right too... Take Care, Big Daddy Dave
