    Lainey6605's Note:

    The marinade in this recipe not only makes chops sear beautifully but also provides enticing sweet-sour balance. The chops have to marinate at least 4 hours.

      wonderful, I have used a marinade similar to this in the past, the honey is a must for best tenderizing, these turned out moist an flavorful, great recipe thanks for sharing Lainey!

      My chops sat in the marinade for two days, and they were so delicious! They were moist, tender, and flavorful. I didn't have any mint, so that ingredient was left out, but the honey, lemon, and cayenne were just perfect. I served these with white rice and veggies.
