Asian Inspired Pork Chops
|Background:||I’m definitely not a chef. I love to cook and I love to eat…that’s enough for me. Even though I grew up watching my grandma and mom cook, I did not find a love for it until later in life. My favorite way to cook is to grill. I live in Arizona and love that I can comfortably grill all year around. I like to experiment on the grill and I love to share my grill recipes with people. I’ve taught myself everything I know about grilling…and am eager to learn more!|
|Recipe Name:||Asian Inspired Pork Chops|
|Background and Description:||I love Asian flavors. One evening I was not in the mood to do anything fancy, so I looked in my fridge, saw these ingredients, and the outcome were these pork chops. A little spicy, but so so flavorful!|
|Ingredients:|| – 4 boneless center cut pork chops
– 2 Tablespoons Hoisin sauce
– 1 Tablespoon chili paste (Sambal Oelek Sauce)
– Juice from 1/2 a lime
– 1 garlic clove, minced
|Recipe Instructions:||In a small bowl, mix together the Hoisin, chili paste, lime and garlic.
Place pork chops in a Ziploc bag and pour sauce over top. Seal bag and massage sauce around the meat to coat. Marinate in the fridge for 4 hours.
Place pork chops on a preheated grill and cook for 6-8 minutes per side (turning only once). Or you can bake in a preheated 400 degree oven for 12-15 minutes or until the pork chops are cooked through.
Serve with rice or your favorite side. (I served mine with garlic rice tossed with sauteed zucchini, it was perfect!!)
|Recipe Summary:||A spicy Asian sauce that can be used on pork or chicken.|
