Citrus pork marinade

You can make these in advance them when you first buy the pork chops and freeze them, and they will marinade as they defrost.  Alternatively, you can put the chops in the marinade in the morning - they are best with about 6 hours soaking.

Juice of 2 oranges (4 tbsp)
Juice of 2 lemons (2 tbsp)
Juice of 2 limes (2 tbsp)
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 tsp dijon mustard
1 tsp paprika
3 garlic cloves crushed
3 tsp honey
1 tbsp olive oil
salt and pepper
6 pork chops or loin steaks

Mix up the marinade
Place the chops in a shallow dish so that they can lie flat or use a large 'ziplock' bag.
Pour the marinade over the meat.

At this point, you can freeze them -better if in a bag!  They will marinade as they defrost.

Leave to soak in the marinade for the day - it is best if you turn them over occasionally, so the marinade can get to all parts, and then cook as usual, about 16-20 minutes, turning regularly.
