Very good chops - skipped the cayenne but otherwise made as directed increasing everything for 8 chops. I think these would also be great on the grill. Thanks for sharing!

The seasoning quite unlike the ones we generally use and super pleased to find I loved these chops. Made using chops I knew were very tender, but the ones I just put in the freezer are on the tough side, will be giving your soak a try. Can't wait to summer to do these on the BBQ!
