Pork Chops are not a favorite food in our house.  MM is a bit suspicious of the “other white meat,” and last week the Big One decided that he was tired of eating “chicken, beef, hamburger and pork.”  This recipe is a tasty and easy way to make pork chops, and it isn’t a traditional recipe.  I found this on Martha Stewart over 10 years ago, and I’ve made it regularly ever since.  I mix the marinade up in a pyrex dish, and cook the pork chops on the grill, so there isn’t even that much clean up.

My Mom Made That: Asian Pork Chops


  • 4 Boneless 1/2″ to 1″ thick pork chops
  • 5 Tablespoons Soy Sauce
  • 2 Tablespoons Hoison Sauce (usually sold near the soy sauce if you don’t already have it.)
  • 2-3 Cloves Garlic crushed and finely minced
  • 1 Tablespoon Honey
  • 1 Tablespoon Sugar

Whisk marinade up in dish, and cover pork chops with  the marinade.  Marinade for at least 3 hours but can marinade the pork chops overnight. Cook on the grill and enjoy!
