Adapted from Bon Appetit magazine. If possible, get a helper to grill the meat while you are preparing the cherry sauce - if you time it right, then by the time the grill is preheated and the meat os cooked, your sauce will be ready to go and nice & warm. Cook time for the will vary depending upon the weight of your chops and whether or not they have bones. You may also broil these instead, if desired.

Liked the chops and the look of the cherry sauce but both Dh and I felt the ginger greatly overpowered the cherries to the point of not being able to taste them. Next time I would skip the ginger completely.

this was a nice way to do pork chops, i liked the cherry sauce but the rest of the family preferred theirs plain.. i did add some onions, garlic and ginger to the soy sauce and marinated in the fridge for 2 hrs. this is an easy summer main dish.
