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.

Start by making a marinade of soy sauce, classic coke, garlic, and ginger.

I use my cheese grater on the 2nd smallest setting to grate fresh ginger.

I use a simple garlic press for fresh garlic.

Then, whisk all of the ingredients together. 

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.

  1. Goodness those chops look good! I love anything that merinades in fresh ginger and garlic. Will have to make these for my family soon!


  2. I’ve only made pork chops once, and did not like the result! Thanks for the tips on what cut to buy. I just recently learned about cooking with pop. I cook chicken in pop and barbecue sauce in a pan on the stove – the result is heavenly! But, the next time I find bone-in center cut pork chops on sale, I’ll give this recipe a try! My husband puts ginger on salmon, but he always cuts it up. I never thought about grating it – that’s a much better way to get smaller pieces!
