Greek-Alicious Grilled Pork Chops

Total Time
15 mins
11 mins

I wanted to develop a sweet and tangy Grecian-style marinade for pork chops on the grill. The honey also helps tenderize the meat and gives it a beautiful browning ability. I hope you enjoy this! (I didn't want marinade to have a strong garlic flavor, which is why I chose garlic salt.) Note: Times given do not include marinating time of at least 4 hours.
