Lemon-Garlic Marinated Pork Chops

There is nothing like the perfectly grilled pork chop: crispy on the edges, moist in the middle and flavor packed all around. When it comes to pork, things can get a little dicey (the meat can dry out if left on the heat for too long), or they can be super simple, hot off the grill and onto the dinner plate!

We really like to do a little prep for the most (and moist) delicious pork chops. A little marinade goes a long way in creating flavor-forward chops every time you grill. See our family-favorite recipe for Lemon-Garlic Marinated Pork Chops and get the grill going. Dinner is gonna be T A S T Y !
