Zesty Grilled Chops

I can't believe I've been absent from here for over a week.  We went camping this past weekend and I changed schedules this week so I haven't been able to keep up like I should.  Anyway, here are the zesty grilled pork chops with a side of carrots and snap peas.  This recipe is from Taste of Home Simple and Delicious cookbook circa 2007 page 32:

3/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 tablespoon chili sauce
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
6 bone-in pork loin chops (8 ounces each)

In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the soy sauce, lemon juice, brown sugar, chili sauce and garlic powder. Remove 1/4 cup for basting and refrigerate. Add pork chops to the remaining marinade; turn to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 3 hours or overnight, turning once.
Drain and discard marinade from chops. Grill, covered, over medium-hot heat for 4 minutes. Turn; baste with reserved marinade. Grill 4-7 minutes longer or until juices run clear.
Yield: 6 servings.

The recipe was changed to just two servings.  This was delicious!  Proof positive that sweet and pork go super well together.
