Let’s welcome Janelle from Comfy in the Kitchen again for another fabulous recipe!!!
The thing is, pork is a very tricky meat to prepare. Have any of you learned this the hard way as much as I have? If you over cook, you will end up chewing a very dry piece of meat while taking swigs of water to get it down. If you purchase the “wrong” cut, it will be flavorless. I have learned the art of making pork chops and am pleased to share with you some secrets.
BIG tip: ALWAYS purchase fresh, bone-IN, center cut pork chops. Bone-in gives you more flavor -and yes, a little more fat, but this makes the pork chops juicy. You will not miss those boneless chops after you switch over…trust me.
I use my cheese grater on the 2nd smallest setting to grate fresh ginger.
You can place chops in a dish and pour marinade over top and flip during the day. Or you can put all of these ingredients in a large and sturdy Ziploc bag. Marinate for 6-8 hours for best results. Grill on med-high heat for 6-8 mins per side until “almost” white. They will continue to cook after you take them off of the grill. Don’t overcook or they will be dry!
I sauteed some Vidalia onions to top it off. I served these with redskin mashed potatoes and mixed veggies.
