Best Pork Chop Marinade
This pork chop marinade is the best I've ever made. I started throwing things together in a bowl and I'm so glad I wrote it down. The flavor is best when pork is grilled. Try it and see!

- ¼cup extra-virgin olive oil
- 4cloves garlic, chopped

Step 1Place pork chops on a flat work surface. Slice horizontally through the middle, being careful not to cut all the way through to the other side. Open the two sides and spread them out like an open book.
Step 2Whisk olive oil, garlic, brown sugar, lemon juice, mustard, thyme, onion powder, Worcestershire sauce, vinegar, mesquite seasoning, parsley, salt, and pepper together in a bowl; pour into a large resealable plastic bag. Add pork chops, coat with marinade, squeeze out excess air and seal the bag. Marinate in the refrigerator, 6 to 8 hours.
