Grilled pork chop recipes have the advantage of being easy to cook, yet delicious. It takes not more than 30 minutes to prepare a tasty meal for two, in case you don’t feel like dining out. This recipe takes a bit more time because it involves marinating the pork chops. However, it is worth the wait. Marinated pork meat is much more tender and it has an incredibly appealing flavor.
Ingredients for two persons:
- 4 pork chops, average size, about 1 inch thick
- 4 spoonfuls soy sauce
- 4 spoonfuls water
- juice from one lemon, freshly squeezed
- 2 garlic cloves, crushed
- 1 red onion, minced
Mix the soy sauce with water, lemon juice, garlic and onion, then put the mixture in a plastic bag together with the pork chops, making sure that the meat is fully covered by liquid. Refrigerate over night or at least for 4-5 hours.
Preheat the grill to medium-high temperature, then cook the marinated pork chops for about 5 minutes on each side. Make sure you don’t overcook them, otherwise the meat will turn chewy and dry. If you are not sure about the cooking time, you can cut one of the chops and see if it’s done. A fully cooked pork chop shouldn’t be pink anymore.
Serve hot, with a brown sauce, roast potatoes and steamed vegetables seasoned with a hint of minced parsley.
