  • 1/2 onion, chopped into strips
  • 1/2 cup/120 mL fresh squeezed orange juice
  • 1 cup/120 mL barbecue sauce
  • 1/4 cup/60 mL cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoon/30 mL soy sauce

  • 1 teaspoon/5 mL fresh rosemary, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon/2.5 mL dried sage
  • 1-2 large cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1/2 teaspoon/2.5 mL black pepper

How to Make It

Mix together soy sauce, vinegar, orange juice, sage, salt, black pepper garlic, onion, rosemary,and barbecue sauce in mixing bowl. Place chops in a large resealable plastic bag, pour in marinade, and seal. Place in refrigerator for 6 to 8 hours, or overnight.

Preheat grill for high heat. Remove pork chops from bag, reserving marinade, and set on a large plate or cutting board. Pour marinade into a small saucepan.

Bring contents to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low and let simmer for 4-5 minutes.  Remove from heat and let cool.

Lightly oil preheated grill. Transfer chops to grill and cook for 12-14 minutes, turning a few times. Brush marinade over chops toward the last 5-6 of cooking. Once chops have reached an internal temperature of 145 degrees F and above, remove from heat, let rest for 5 minutes and serve with your favorite sides.
