Marinated Chops

Cassie *


These chops are seriously some of the best I have ever had. I make these a few times a month, at least!.. So juicy and flavorful. I use my cast iron grill skillet when weather does not permit to grill outside. I like seeing those grill

How to Make Marinated Chops


  1. In a large bowl, combine the first nine ingredients. Pour 1/2 cu marinade into a large resealable plastic bag; add the chops. ( I use my tupperware marinade container). Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for at least 2 hours. (I leave overnight).

    Cover and refrigerate remaining coffee mixture until ready to cook.
  2. For glaze:

    Place remaining coffee mixture in a small saucepan.

    Bring to a boil; cook until is reduced to about 1/2 cup.
  3. If grilling; coat grill racks with cooking spray before starting the grill. Drain and discard marinade.

    Grill chops, covered, over medium heat or broil 4 - 6 in. from heat for 4 - 5 minutes on each side or until a meat thermometer reads 160.

    Spoon glaze over chops, and enjoy!
