We made these last night for dinner and were a bit disappointed. When we started the marinade the night before, it smelled wonderful...mostly of citrus and rosemary, but some of the olive oil, garlic and cloves, too. When we tasted the pork chops, the predominate flavor was rosemary. Tastey and moist, but not as complex in flavor as we'd expected. As an additional note, we grilled these on an outdoor grill (using hardwood lump charcoal) instead of in a grill pan.
