Thanks!

Enough Beer to submerge them, Thyme or Rosemary, a teaspoon of mustard powder, and a wee bit of garlic for 24 hours. Salt and Pepper just before I put them on the grill.

I forgot to mention, the marinade must be alcohol-free. Even if parts or all the alcohol evaporates during preparation, alcohol won't be used. Can beer be substituted with another liquid?

Coca cola is amazing for pork... when grilled it gives it an amazing light crust that can induce multiple tastegasms. I had it in Paris last weekend and thought I'd died and gone to culinary heaven (everyone who tasted it thought it was amazing).

Plenty of recipes online to choose from if you search for "pork coca cola marinade" https://www.google.ch/search?q=pork+...m=122&ie=UTF-8

Re: Pork chop marinade ideas needed

Juice of 1 lemon, 1-2 cloves crushed garlic, chopped up fresh rosemary and sage, a little olive oil, salt and pepper. Whisk. up and pour over the chops in a tupperware box. Put the lid on marinade for as long as you - hours, overnight etc. Pick up the box and shake it now and again.

No photos - except for an empty plate.

Cheers,
Nick

Coca cola is amazing for pork...
And Coco-cola can be replaced with Root Beer or Ginger Beer - both work really well.

Rehydrate a couple of Chipotle chillis and add them to the marinade for a nice smoky flavour.

Mmm ginger beer, would also be well worth a try!

I like to keep it simple: olive oil, salt and garlic.

I use Sprite, 7-Up or a citrus flavored soda. Also, a kiwi, apple or pineapple in the marinade is a very effective tenderizer.

Re: Pork chop marinade ideas needed

2 ways:

Greek: fresh lemon juice, olive oil, dried wild oregano, fresh garlic, salt & pepper:

Post photos of what you cook and bake in Switzerland

Or

Chinese: 1 tbsp. hoisin sauce, 1/2 tbsp. honey, 1 tbsp. oyster sauce, 1 tbsp. light Soy sauce, 1/2 tsp. five spice powder, 1/2 tsp Sesame oil, 1 tbsp. Peanut oil.

They are both delicious and my favourite ways of cooking pork chops, especially over charcoal.
