Updated Apr 30, 2010

Ingredients

  • 1 package (1.1 oz) mesquite marinade mix for the grill
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 4 bone-in or boneless pork chops (1/2 inch thick)
  • 1 large sweet onion, cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices

Steps

  • 1
    In large shallow dish or resealable food-storage plastic bag, mix marinade mix, water and oil. Add pork chops and onion; turn to coat. Cover dish or seal bag; refrigerate 30 minutes to marinate.
  • 2
    Heat gas or charcoal grill.
  • 3
    When grill is heated, remove pork and onion from marinade; reserve marinade. Place pork and onion on gas grill over medium heat or on charcoal grill over medium coals; cover grill. Cook 10 to 15 minutes, turning once and brushing frequently with marinade, until pork is no longer pink in center. Discard any remaining marinade.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Pork chops are already tender, so this marinade is used primarily to flavor the meat. Note that marinade times are shorter when tenderizing is not necessary.
