Honey Grilled Pork Chops

I had 4 tenderloin chops to prepare for lunch. As I was thinking on what to do with it, I happen to see the glass of honey. And that gave me the idea. An easy recipe with less ingredients, simple yet sumptuous.
The chops can be grilled or baked in the oven. I used my convection oven to grill it, then pouring the drippings over the cooked chops just before serving. One important thing to remember though, discard the marinating liquid, and do not use it for basting or gravy, as it contains raw pork juices.

4-6 pcs. pork chops
1 cup honey
1 small onion, chopped (optional)
soy sauce

1. Pour honey in a bowl and add in soy sauce. The amount of soy sauce can be depending on your taste, more if you want to balance the sweetness of honey. Stir mixture until sauce has a syrupy consistency.
2. Add onions if using, mix well. Separate about 1/4 of the mixture, for basting later.
3. Let chops marinate in a bowl or cake pan and cover with the sauce. It can be marinated for as long as you wish, for stronger flavor, but can also just be dipped before grilling. Either way works.
4. Place chops on grill, basting with the remaining sauce as needed, until cooked.
5. Serve warm.
