Good BBQ is hard to beat!! Especially this time of year.
This is for two large pork chops with the bone in so you can adjust amounts accordingly. Combine sherry, soy sauce, mirin, sriracha sauce, Worcestershire sauce, ketchup and ground ginger in a large plastic ziploc bag. If you have fresh ginger for goodness sakes use it. I could not find any so I had to settle for the dried version.
Add two large cloves minced garlic and allow that to marinate for about an hour. After about an hour fire up that grill.
Put the chops on the grill and put the marinade in a small saucepan. You will need to bring this to a FULL BOIL to make sure that it is safe for basting. After you bring to a full boil simmer it on low till it starts to thicken up.
Cook the chops for about 4 minutes on each side basting the meat as you go. Once complete you can throw the chops in the stove under the broiler for one minute on each side. Remember that most meats taste at their best after allowing to rest for about 15 minutes. Just cover with foil and work on your sides.
Delicious. A cold ale or a glass of Shiraz and you have yourself a Bon Appetit!
Asian BBQ Pork Chops
- 1 tablespoon sherry
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons mirin
- 2 teaspoons sriracha hot chili sauce
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1 teaspoon dried ginger
- 1/3 cup ketchup
- 2 large cloves garlic minced
- 2 large bone in pork chops
- Combine first eight ingredients (sherry thru garlic) in a large ziploc bag. Add the pork chops to the ziploc bad and allow to marinate for at least an hour. Flip the bag a couple of times.
- Put chops on grill and pour remaining marinade into small saucepan and bring to full boil. Simmer and let thicken.
- Cook the pork chops for four minutes on each side. Basting with the sauce as soon as it is ready.
- Remove pork chops and put under the broiler for one minute on each side. This helps glaze the pork chops.
- If you need a little more time to get your sauce all cooked and ready on the stove than move your pork chops to a separate plate for a few minutes before placing on the grill.
- Marinade is fine to use as a basting sauce only if it is brought to a full boil. I let mine boil for a couple of minutes to be sure.
