Chinese BBQ Grilled Pork Chops


If the weather is above 40 degrees, it's grill time in my opinion. Grilling is my favorite cooking method because it's fast and adds a great smoky flavor. Speaking of flavor, these pork chops are a flavor BOMB. The sauce is a combo of sweet, salty and spicy and will have you licking your plate. Serve the chops with rice or stir-fried veggies.

1. Combine marinade ingredients in a mixing bowl.


2. Place pork chops in a large storage bag and pour 1/2 of the marinade over. Seal the bag and refrigerate for 4 hours (or overnight). Reserve the remaining marinade in a separate container in the fridge. 


3. Heat grill to medium-high and grill the chops for 6-8 minutes per side (depending on the thickness) until they are no longer pink. Remove the chops from the grill and rest for 10 minutes. 



4. While the chops rest, warm the remaining marinade in a small saucepan over medium heat. Drizzle sauce over the pork chops and garnish with sesame seeds and green onion.
