You can think of this as a sister recipe to our lemonade marinated chicken recipe. We’re cooking up big flavors with simple ingredients, AKA your marinade, a protein, and of the most important ingredient, Dan-O’s Seasoning. But this time we’re using some beautiful pork chops, and finishing it off with Sweet Baby Rays! This Lemonade Marinated Pork Chops Recipe is sure to be a home run and perfect for a tailgate or cookout.
So why are we doing lemonade marinades lately? Your pork or chicken will absorb the juices, inviting salty, sweet, and citrus flavors into the meat. When you add your Dan-O’s Seasoning to the outside becomes coated in a perfect blend of herbs and spices that will make you tear-up. The residual sugars will start to caramelize, and the Dan-O’s will make a beautiful herb crust. Hungry yet?!
After you let your pork chops marinate, hit them with a generous portion of Dan-O’s and fire up your grill. We’re going to turn them after a few minutes for those nice diamond grill marks and finish them with BBQ sauce for an added layer of flavor. We hope you’re ready for big Dan flavors with the Dan-O’s Grilled Lemonade Marinated Pork Chops Recipe!
