Grilled Pork Chop Marinade

This marinade works best when allowed to sit on the meat for at least 12 hours. It works well as an overnight marinade.

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Ready In: 25 minutes

Yield: 2 servings


  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • Black pepper to taste
  • 2 pork chops
  1. Combine all the ingredients well.
  2. Place the pork chops in a Ziploc bag and pour the marinade over the top. Seal the bag and place it in the refrigerator for at least 12 hours.

Other flavors that work well in a pork marinade include Worcestershire sauce, ketchup, pineapple juice and garlic. Most marinades work best when left on the pork for at least 4 hours, but the longer a marinade is allowed to sit on the meat, the more flavorful and tender it will be. The pork may be grilled, broiled or baked.
