Yogurt Chops

Stir garlic into yogurt. Place chops in glass baking dish, pour yogurt mixture over to coat, and cover with plastic wrap. Marinate at room temperature 2 hours or overnight in the refrigerator.


Remove chops from yogurt mixture and grill over medium-high heat, 3 minutes per side.

The lactic acid in yogurt is a better tenderizer than the acetic acid in vinegar. Chicken responds best to it, but pork also improves in texture and flavor.
