Hoisen Marinated Pork Chops
These pork chops are divine! They are marinated overnight in a rich, thick Hoisen mixture and grilled. They are tender beyond belief and they have a sticky, crispy crust! Super easy and perfect for entertaining!
- 1/2 cup of hoisin sauce (sold in the Asian section of most grocery stores)
- 1/4 cup of soy sauce
- 4 cloves of garlic, chopped
- 2 Tbs of honey
- 1 Tbs of sugar
- 2 Tbs of rice wine vinegar (also in the Asian section)
- 2 thick cut, bone in pork chops
- 2-3 green onions for garnish
Stir together the hoisin, soy, garlic, honey, sugar and rice wine vinegar. Place the chops in a large ziplock bag and pour in the marinade.Refrigerate overnight or even for 2 nights. Take them out of the fridge 1 hour before grilling and let them come to room temperature. Remove from the marinade and shake off the excess. Reserve the marinade, pour in a small saucepan and bring to a boil, let simmer for a few minutes, this will be your sauce for serving on the side. To make it even more silky, add 1 Tbs of butter. Prepare your grill for direct heat and grill the chops for 3 minutes on each side.To serve, plate the chops, drizzle with some of the heavenly sauce and sprinkle on the chopped green onions, serve remaining sauce on the side. I like to serve simple pickled red onions with these chops. To make, just thinly slice 1 red onion, place in a bowl and pour in enough rice wine vinegar to cover, stir in 2 Tbs of sugar and 1 tbs of salt. Let sit for at least 30 minutes.
