My husband recently got some “buy one get one free” center cut pork chops that were about to expire. He dug around in the fridge for a while and came up with this marinade for them:
- the last of our homemade plum jelly (about 1/2 cup)
- soy sauce (about 1/2 cup)
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- about 1/2 can of Coke (to tenderize)
He put it all, along with the pork chops, in a large Ziploc bag and leave it in the fridge for about an hour and a half.
Then, he put them on a hot grill and brushed the leftover marinade over them periodically.
Boy, oh boy! Were they ever tasty!
We had these with oven roasted red potatoes, cut into chunks, tossed with olive oil and seasoning salt, and topped with shredded cheddar and mozzarella. The classic green bean casserole rounded out the menu.
Cheap, easy, and tasty….the perfect meal!
