Recipe by Sue Lau
These tasty chops have a bit of an Oriental flair! Can easily be done under the broiler if you don't wish to grill outdoors, or if it suddenly rains! Prep time does not include marinating time.
- 1⁄2 cup soy sauce
- 1 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1 1⁄2 tablespoons minced garlic
- 4 center-cut pork chops, 1 1/2-inch, thick
- 4 tablespoons brown sugar
- 6 tablespoons honey
- 1 tablespoon sesame oil
Directions See How It's Made
- Trim excess fat from chops; then prick with a fork on both sides and set aside.
- Combine soy sauce, ginger and garlic in a small bowl; pour half of this in a shallow pan and add the chops.
- Pour remaining sauce/marinade over the chops, then refrigerate for up to 8 hours, turning occasionally.
- Prepare grill; spray grill rack with non-stick spray before heating.
- Combine sugar, honey and sesame oil in a small saucepan; cook on low until sugar dissolves then remove from heat.
- Remove chops from marinade and discard marinade.
- Drizzle chops lightly with peanut or other oil on both sides, and grill directly over coals or heat until lightly charred.
- Turn chops and do opposite side; then move away from direct heat.
- Brush chops with honey glaze and cover grill.
- Turn and baste chops several times, until meat checks done, about 30 minutes or a cut towards the bone section shows no blood and only pale pink to browned meat.
