    It makes cooking pork chops on the BBQ easy and less mess than the inside grill. Excellent flavour and very tender. I could not find our Dijon mustard so I used hot english and still tasted great. What makes it simple is that all the ingredients are usually on hand.  -  20 Mar 2017


    WOW! Say good-bye to dreaded "dry pork" forever with this tasty BBQ pork dish that definitely has an Italian flair to it. I LOVE balsamic vinegar and could practically drink the stuff so I had to try this. Instead of cooking the sauce I decided to use it as a marinade. I cut back a bit on the balsamic (use a good quality one and you can't go wrong) and added 2 Tbsp. of olive oil. Other than that I wouldn't change a thing. I used thick cut bone-in chops and put everything into a ziploc bag and let it marinate for a full 24 hours. The smell coming off the grill was fantastic and the taste was sensational. Just as the submitter states it's just the right amount of sweetness and the chops were definitely moist, juicy and full of flavor. This was perfect served with "Grilled Tomato, Onion, and Bread Salad" from this site. Thanks Sarah for a great recipe!  -  23 Jun 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Sooo good. These pork chops have been marinated for 2 days. We don't have a grill, so I put them in a skillet on medium high heat for 1 minute per side and then tossed them in the broiler for 3 minutes per side. They were so yummy!  -  19 Sep 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
