Soy, Honey and Lemon Marinated Pork Chops: Magically transformed with a flavorful marinade, these chops are tender, juicy and perfect for your grill!
Soy, Honey and Lemon Marinated Pork Chops
It’s incredible what a terrific marinade can do for a cut of meat. These marinated pork chops were extremely tender and juicy. Just sensational. The soy and honey acted like a brine, drawing in both flavor and moisture. Think back to your high school science classes and osmosis. That’s what happened to these chops as they soaked in their flavorful bath overnight. And the lemon juice tenderized the pork…it sliced easily with a table knife. This dish has just usurped all other pork chop recipes in my repertoire. You MUST try it.

I’m starting a new series of Skinny Tips. How I keep slim is one of my most frequent inquiries. I’ll feature tips on some of my upcoming blog posts.
Tip #22: Don’t skip meals. You tend to get over-hungry (ravishing in my case) when you don’t eat for a long period. When you finally do eat a meal, you are more likely to overeat, consuming more calories than you would have if you’d eaten two separate meals. So don’t skip breakfast (or lunch or dinner).
