I made the marinade and discovered I was out of pork chops. Substituted Chicken breast (boneless/skinless) and they were so good. I served this with the pineapple relish and brown rice. My husband mixed the rice and relish and thought it was fantastic. I think I will stick with chicken as opposed to pork chops it was just so good!
Oh my world! 5 stars for the chops AND 5 stars for the pineapple relish - and the two go together like a horse and carriage. I had to use a recipe to make hoisin sauce as I didn't have any, but the extra effort was well worth it. Due to unforeseen events, my pork chops ended up marinating for 2 days and they turned out absolutely delish! I made 1/2 of the pineapple relish without the coriander and jalapeno for a "non-spicy" friend, and both versions were lovely. Thank you, Charmie - a definite keeper :)
I just made the marinade as I did not want to go and buy limes or pineapple. I made half the amount as I only had 5 chops. I used 1/2 cup hoisin, 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar, 2 tablespoons soy sauce, 3 garlic cloves and 1 tsp sesame oil. That is how it is written on the food network site for his recipe. It was fantastic. Even with all the sugar in the sauce my chops did not burn and they turned out moist. They had marinated for only 3 hours. Will try with the relish next time as I will plan ahead.
