Sweet Marinated Pork Chops

Ok, so my favorite way to have a pork chop is when it's been marinating for hours upon hours in some sort of heavenly marinade and then is cooked just right. That is, not too tough, not too much marinade but not too little...and these pork chops, folks, were perfect.

2 large pork chops (2.00)
1 tbs soy sauce (.05)
2 tbs ketchup (.05)
2 tbs brown sugar (.05)
1 tbs Worcester sauce (.10)
2 tbs vegetable oil (.03)
1 tbs lemon juice (.02)
1 large yellow squash (.92)

*This recipe involves a marinade that needs to sit for at least 2 hours to give meat the flavoring that it needs.

Step 1: Make your marinade. Mix soy sauce, ketchup, brown sugar, worcester sauce, vegetable oil and lemon juice in a bow. Pour them over your chops and let them marinade for AT LEAST 2 hours. Meat tastes best if marinated for over 6 hours.
Step 2: Preheat oven to 350 and then throw in the pork chops for about 30-40 minutes. While pork chops are baking, steam your squash. Don't have a steamer? Fill a large saucepan with about an inch of water, stick a colander on top, put your veggies in there and cover it with the sauce pan lid and let it steam for about 10 minutes.

Step 3: Pull the pork out, cut into one to make sure it's cooked and then plate the meal! Enjoy!!
Total cost of meal: $3.22
