    This is a great recipe for a cookout! The recipe can easily be adjusted to make more chops!

    The sauce is very flavorful, don't oversauce the chop!


  1. 2 cloves garlic, minced
  2. 2 T brown sugar
  3. 3 T honey
  4. 3 T soy sauce
  5. 3 T Worcestershire sauce
  6. 2 t ketchup
  7. 1/2 t ground ginger
  8. 1/2 t onion powder
  9. 1/4 t ground cinnamon
  10. 1/8 t cayenne pepper
  11. 1 T corn starch, optional
  12. 2 (6 oz) thick cut boneless pork loin chops


  1. Mix the garlic, brown sugar, honey, soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, ketchup, ginger, onion powder, cinnamon, and cayenne pepper in a bowl.
  2. Pour half the mixture into a large plastic zipper bag, and place the pork chops into the marinade. Squeeze the air out of the bag, and seal the bag.
  3. Refrigerate 4 to 8 hours, turning occasionally. Refrigerate remaining marinade in the bowl.
  4. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate.
  5. Remove the pork chops from the plastic bag. Discard the marinade from the plastic bag.
  6. Grill chops on the preheated grill, basting with a small amount of the reserved marinade until meat is browned, no longer pink inside and shows good grill marks, 8 to 10 minutes per side. A meat thermometer inserted inserted into the thickest part of a chop should read 145°F.
  7. Meanwhile, pour remaining marinade into a saucepan over medium heat, bring to a boil, and reduce heat to a simmer. Cook the marinade until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes, stirring occassionaly. (If you prefer a thicker sauce, combine 1 T cornstarch and 2 T cold water in a small container. Stir into sauce and bring to a boil.)
  8. Serve sauce with chops.
