Grilled Pork Chops with Peanut Marinade

Total time: 30 minutes
     Similar to a satay, this slightly spicy marinade goes well with pork.  For maximum flavor, poke the pork with a fork after adding the marinade to allow it to penetrate the meat.  We had thin chops that cook quickly; try not to overcook, slightly pink is now preferred for pork.

General Technical Details and Disclaimer:

Note:  Pork chops vary greatly in calories; this assumes top loin chops with fat trimmed but not completely removed.  Center cut chops are higher; sirloin cut chops are lower.

Another Note:  It's assume that 1 tbs of the oil gets left behind. ie. not eaten.

Measurements are actual measurements used for calculation. If there are no values the nutritional numbers were simply too small.

I try to be accurate, but I do not guarantee it.  I use 'grams' as the unit of weight; with an approximate conversion to ounces.
