Asian-Marinated Bone-in Pork Loin Chops
Recipe type: Pork, Main Dish
Makes: 4 servings
These bone-in pork chops are dead easy to make - marinate the pork chops the night before, and you have a simple weeknight dinner, paired with my "dead easy Asian cucumber salad" and/or some quick pickled carrots and daikon.
  • 1 lemon, zest and juice
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 Tbsp (30 mL) olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp (15 mL) soy sauce
  • 2 tsp (10 mL) rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) chili flakes
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) salt
  • 4 bone-in pork loin chops
  1. Whisk together marinade ingredients in a small bowl. Place loin chops in a shallow baking dish and pour marinade over the meat. Cover and let sit in the fridge for at least one hour to marinate, but overnight is best.
  2. Remove from fridge, let rest at room temperature for 15 minutes then grill on a hot barbecue until cooked through, approximately 6-8 minutes, flipping over once.
