Barbequed Asian Pork Loin Chops

These pork chops have a delicious marinade that can be made into a sauce, if desired. Barb L.

Serves: 4

Ingredients:

Marinade:

½ cup hickory barbeque sauce

4 Tbsp low sodium soy sauce

¼ cup Flying Olive Honey Ginger, Peach, or Pineapple Balsamic Vinegar or a Combination of Choice

4 large cloves garlic, minced

1 rounded Tbsp fresh, peeled, minced gingerroot

1 Tbsp Flying Olive Chipotle, Harissa, Cayenne Red Chili, or Garlic Extra Virgin Olive Oil plus a little more for oiling the grate

For the Pork Chops:

4 pork loin chops, about 4-6 ounces each (1-1 ½ lb)

½ cup water, if making the marinade into a sauce

Directions:

Mix together the marinade ingredients. Place the pork chops in a zip-lock bag or a glass baking dish and add the marinade. Turn to coat. Place on the counter for 30 minutes or in the refrigerator for lup to 1-2 hours.

While the pork is marinating, place a little Flying Olive EVOO on a paper towel. Hold the towel with tongs and lightly oil the grill grates. Heat the grill to medium-high. You can also preheat the broiler.

Drain the pork. If desired, pour the marinade into a small saucepan. Stir in ½ cup water and bring to a boil over high heat. Boil for at least 5 minutes to destroy the harmful bacteria.

Place the pork on the grill or broiler rack. Close thecover, or broil about 4-5 inches from the heat for about 3-4 minutes, depending on the thickness of the chops. Turn over and continue grillin/broiling until the chops are done, about 2-4 additional minutes. An instant-read thermometer should register 145 degrees.

Remove from the grill and let stand for 3 minutes under loose aluminum foil before serving. If making the sauce, serve drizzled on the chops or along side the pork chops. (Photo shows without the sauce)
