These simple pork chops taste as good as they look. They cook quickly on the grill or in equal time under the broiler.


  • 4 boneless pork chops, 1-inch thick
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 Tbs soy sauce
  • 1 Tbs dry sherry
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced


  • Combine marinade ingredients and pour over chops in self-sealling plastic bag and seal bag. Refrigerate 4-24 hours.
  • Prepare covered grill medium-hot coals. Remove chops from marinade (discard marinade). Grill chops over direct heat 12-15 minutes, turning occasionally until internal temperature on a thermometer reads 160° F.
