Not Your Usual Chops

Walking into the grocery without a list is always interesting for me. I have my ‘go-to’ meals, but I also love to find new things and come up with a recipe. 
First, I walk in and go straight to the meat that is on sell. Usually I find a random mix of  pork-chops, filets, ribs, pork-sausage, and chicken. Depending on the day, I find the different types of meat. This particular day, I decided to buy the pork-chops.

For those of you who live in the South, know what I’m talking about when you think ‘pork-chops’ you automatically think ‘fried’. Well, yes…fried are absolutely WONDERFUL, yet…I’m trying to be a bit healthier. Tough, I know. If you have never had a fried pork-chop, you must try one. They are heavenly. {Maybe i’ll branch out and put those on here one day!}
As for now…I’ll stick with my ‘healthier’ version–

  1. Mix all of the ingredients of the marinade together.
  2. Pour the marinade over the chops and let sit in the fridge for at least 2 hours. {The longer the better.}
  3. Flip the chops during the marinading process so that all sides are covered well.
  4. Heat up the grill or skillet and cook your chops.
  5. Finish off with fresh parsley.
