Grilled Pork Chops

My grocery had pork loins on sale last week for $1.99 per pound. How can you go wrong at that price. They were beautiful. You know fall is coming when pork starts going on sale. I cut half into chops and save half for a roast. I know they will cut them for free, but being the A personality that I am I'd rather cut my own.

Grilled Pork Chops
6 servings
print recipe

6 pork chops, 1-inch thick
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup sake
2 tablespoons brown sugar (I use maple syrup)
1 tablespoon chili sauce, homemade of course - Heinz will work
1 garlic clove, minced
1 pinch of ginger - I use fresh because that's what I have

Mix all the ingredients, except the chops. Preheat grill to medium heat. Brush the sauce on the chops and place on grill. Basting occasionally, turn the cops after 7-8 minutes on each side, depending on the thickness.


  1. This sounds awesome. I love pork chops and pork roast. The sauce sounds delicious. But I have a problem. Even if I figure out where to get the sake, what do I do with the rest of the bottle after I take out 1/4 cup? I admit I've never tried sake, but don't think I would like it. (I just hate it when other people say that.)

  2. I can't believe this! The Pres just made grilled pork chops last night...:)JP

  3. I like the soy and ginger in this recipe. Nice flavors.

  4. mmmmm..i could eat some of this right now! we had pork on sale too and i was thinking schnitzel but not just yet. i need it to be a bit cooler!
