I stupidly didn't read through the entire recipe and discarded the remaining marinade before basting the chops. I can only image this would have enhanced the flavor which was really good anyway. I used our Traeger grill with mesquite pellets. The Kimshi slaw was a good side. I'll definitely make this again.
Barbecued Pork Chops
A simple 8-ingredient marinade, made with mostly pantry staples, brings out the vibrant flavor of these chops. Pair with kimchi-style slaw for a flavorful duo and a quick-cooking dinner solution, ready in about 40 minutes (including a 25-minute marinade).
