3. Iowa Pork Chops (Mark Martin Style)

Categories: Pork

Yield: 4 Servings

4 To 6 loin pork chops *
3/4 c Soy sauce
2 tb Olive oil
1 tb Ketchup
1 md Onion, chopped
1 To 2 garlic cloves, minced
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste

With a large section of tenderloin, cut at least 1 1/2 inches thick. Place the pork chops in a glass dish or plastic bag.

Mix together remaining ingredients and pour over chops. Refrigerate for 2 to 4 hours (no more than 4 or all you'll taste is soy sauce). Turn chops from time to time.

Grill chops over hot coals in a covered cooker for 3 to 4 minutes per side. Then stand the chops up on their chine bones, cover the cooker and grill for exactly 14 minutes. That's it! Pork chops to perfection. Serves 4 to 6.

NOTE: The marinade may be saved in the refrigerator for 1 more batch of chops.
