Today, I’m using a one-pound pork tenderloin instead of pork chops, but either work fine with this recipe. I like my meat to spend some time in a marinade, and if I were using chops, this would be enough marinade for about 4 pork chops.
To get the most flavor into your meat, make your marinade the night before you plan to serve, put it over meat in a large Ziploc, and leave in the fridge until you are ready to cook the next night’s dinner.
Pork Tenderloin or Chops
½ Cup Honey
4 Tablespoons Soy Sauce
Juice of 1 Lemon
2 Teaspoons Minced Garlic
Salt, but be careful!
1. Mix all ingredients except meat and salt, stirring well.
2. Rub your meat with your favorite salt or seasoning salt. I never say this, but be careful! The marinade with make your meat saltier than normal.
3. Put meat in a large bag and pour marinade over it, making sure it covers well.
4. If you can, turn the bag over after several hours to insure equal coverage.
5. When you are ready to cook, take the meat out of the marinade and grill as you normally would*
6. While meat grills, pour what’s left of the marinade into a sauce pan and boil for about 3 minutes.
7. Remove meat from grill and pour marinade over it when you serve (if you like a sauce with your meat).
*You can always bake your pork in the oven. Take out 2-3 times and rub with marinade while it cooks.
