2 Minute Pork Chop Marinade!
Prep Time: 2 Minutes!
On the weekend I decided that I would try “online ordering” from M&M Meat Shops, and let me tell you, what an amazing shopping experience it was! By ordering online, I was able to browse through all of their products, easily search for specific ones, view and compare their weekly deals and easily stick to my budget! Then, when I went to the store to pick it up (at a specific time that I got to choose!), it was all ready in a giant box, and the nice people working even carried it out to my car for me! I was in and out of the store in about 2 minutes! Definitely a fantastic new way that I will continue to shop with, and I highly recommend that you try it too! Perfect for the busy family! (And no — M&M Meat Shops is not sponsoring this post! LOL)
What does this have to do with Pork Chop Marinade?! Well, I just happened to order some pork chops from there to try for the first time. So last night I took them out of the freezer to thaw, and realized that I needed some sort of marinade for them — oh no! (I’m always so close to being prepared for life…. but never quite fully there! LOL)….
My husband and daughter would be home shortly, so with very little time to spare, I was able to put together this super quick and easy marinade, and it actually turned out to be extremely delicious! (Total score!)
All you need is:
- Pork Chops! (This recipe makes enough for about 4 chops)
- 1/3 cup of Lemon Juice
- 1/4 cup of Olive Oil
- 1/4 cup of BBQ Sauce (I used Sweet Baby Ray’s, my favorite!)
- 1/4 tsp of Pepper
- 1/4 tsp of Garlic Powder
- 1/4 tsp of Onion Powder
- A pinch of Salt
Step One: Mix all of the ingredients together with a fork, until it is all an even consistency.
Step Two: Pour the mixture over the pork chops, and be sure to flip them in order to cover both sides with the marinade.
Step Three: After your chops have marinaded for a couple of minutes, or hours — whatever you have time for, throw them on the grill and cook as usual!
Tip: Since this marinade uses so much lemon juice, it is absorbed by the meat rather quickly, so you are able to use it right away! But for even more flavor, let your meat marinade for a couple of hours, or even overnight!
I hope you enjoy this quick and easy recipe…. I definitely did and will be trying it on chicken next time! Do you have a favorite quick and easy go-to marinade recipe, that you’d like to share? I am always looking for new things to try! 🙂
