Sweet and Salty Pork Chops

Growing up these Sweet and Salty Pork Chops were a family favorite.  My sister shunned red meat and fish for a good 10 years so pork chops were one of the only meats she would eat other than chicken.  My poor mother… i don’t know how she survived cooking chicken and potatoes for EVERY meal.

I am not someone to reach away from a dipping sauce but these chops need no help.  The sweet and salty marinade is flavorful enough on its own. Im getting hungry jus thinking about them!
