My favorite type of meal in the summer is a piece of marinated meat with fresh vegetables from the garden. It is so fresh, quick and easy to prepare. In the summer heat, I am not intersted in slaving over the stove all day…shocking, I know! I want a meal that I can throw together without a lot of effort. Summer is the time for pork chops to go on sale for great prices, so this marinade for pork is one my mom found and I am in love! The marinade is very basic, but gives a LOT of flavor to the pork or chicken that you are marinading. I like to marinate this pork overnight to give it a lot of flavor! The three tablespoons of lemon pepper seems like too much, but it actually gives just the right amount of flavor. If you want a new summer marinade, give this one a try..it is delicious!

Instructions
  1. In a deep bowl mix all marinade ingredients together. Place the pork chops in a Ziploc bag or a bowl and pour marinade on top of pork chops. Marinate at least 2 hours. Remove from marinade and cook over medium-high heat on greased grill for no more than 15 minutes or until done. Cooking time for second side is shorter by 1-2 minutes. 3/4" or thinner, 5-6 minutes maximum per side, thicker than 3/4" 6-7 minutes maximum per side. DO NOT OVER-GRILL, chops will become tough. After 2 minutes grilling on a side, rotate chops 45 degrees for even cooking. Turn over when juices pool on upper surface and meat appears to be cooked half-way through.
