Easy pork chops with a yummy marinade

The mother will be visiting soon, so I decided to clean out my freezer and pre-marinate some stuff for her visit. So along with prepping a lasagna with some delicious meat sauce and a few vinaigrettes, I also decided to marinate some pork chops which I’ve been meaning to cook for a while. Here’s my easy-peasy recipe for really nice sticky sweet and tangy teriyaki style pork chops. Enjoy 


• 1/2 cup soy sauce

• 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar

• 2 teaspoons honey

• 2 teaspoons garlic powder

• 4 pork chops


Mix all the marinade ingredients together -- the soy sauce, vinegar, honey and garlic powder - in a bowl. Soak the chops in the marinade and place in a shallow dish with a cover. If you’re cooking the chops for a meal that day itself, marinate for at least 2 to 4 hours in the refrigerator. Otherwise if you’re going to cook it later, like I am, you can keep it in the marinade for up to 3-4 days and then cook it.

If you have a grill, lightly oil it. Grill the chops 5 to 8 minutes per side, for them to be medium rare. You can drizzle the remaining marinade over the chops while grilling for them to remain moist. If you don’t have a grill, use your non-stick frying pan.

Serve the chops with some nice garlic bread and a green salad.
