I am rating the sauce! It is wonderful!! I'll use it on pork all the time now. I did add some salt and pepper to the pork, although no seasoning of the pork was mentioned. The sauce is probably enough. We really loved this. I was so hungry I forgot to take a picture, but there is one leftover and I'll try to to a picture of it! Thanks for sharing!

What wonderful grilled pork chops. The sauce is really good, and it doesn't take a great deal of time to make. I'll make these grilled pork chops again. Thanks for sharing your recipe, Teresa.

This was fantastic!!! As I was making the sauce, my husband was mowing the lawn. He came in the house and asked me what I was making he could smell it over the smell of fresh cut grass. He said he couldn't wait for dinner. I only grilled two chops but made the full recipe for sauce and I'm glad I did; now I has some on hand to use up for a few more times. Thx for sharing this recipe here.
