Declaring these chops the Juiciest Pork Chops Ever seems like a bold claim. Once you taste them though, your tastebuds will immediately agree: these really are the Juiciest Pork Chops Ever! The secret is letting the pork chops marinate for hours in a tangy, garlicky, and smoky-sweet sauce so all of the flavors soak into the meat and the juices stay in the chop when it meets the grill. Grilling until it just reaches safe temperature means the pork isn’t overcooked and can dazzle your tastebuds with its profound juiciness. You may need to rethink whether you even want burgers at your next cookout when these are available!
