I used the zesty Italian dressing mix and omitted the red pepper flakes. These have a very nice flavor. You can also use sliced pork tenderloin.

The oil mixture on these tender pork chops not only infuses flavor but also allows them to grill up handsomely. Adding vinegar to the marinade encourages the flavor to infuse quickly and the chops emerge with a tangy flavor with a hint of spice.
