    Turned out great. Added basil from our garden that the kids grew to get them to try it. Next time I'm making the kids pork without pepper. Served with garlic couscous and a spinach salad.

    This....... This came out amazing. no need to alter it, if anything make a little extra marinade and use it to baste the chops when they're on the grill.
