Wow! Loved the flavor of these chops! The heat level was just right... spicy but not enough to make your nose run! Since it's just the two of us, I made half a recipe directly in a quart sized ziploc, then threw in the chops and massaged them. No muss, no fuss. I marinated for about 90 minutes - and that was plenty of time to impart the flavor. As always, I upped the garlic and ginger. Just cuz I love them. Will definitely be making this again! Thanks for sharing this recipe!

I used low sodium, gluten free soy sauce and let these marinate for 2 hours and they turned out perfectly. I don't think I would let them marinate any longer then this just because they were so tasty after the 2 hours. A keeper recipe Teresa.

I really enjoyed the taste of the pork chops but the DH said it was okay but wouldn't be in a hurry to make again so looks like when I want it again I will have to cook for myself. Thank you TeresaS, made for For Your Consideration tag game at FF&FF.
