Pork tenderloin, pork chops, pork roast - no matter what cut of swine you have on hand a simple brown sugar, garlic and soy marinade will ensure a flavorful dish! The sweetness and depth of the brown sugar, pungent chopped garlic and salty essence of a flavorful soy...blend together perfectly for an excellent marinade base!
Customize your cuisine by adding a few defining ingredients...cilantro & cumin for a Southwestern flair...green onion and ginger for an Asian inspired dish... or a kicked-up Bar-B-Que sauce for a good old fashion cook-out!
Depending on the thickness and cut of your pork will determine its marinating time, but generally the night before or morning of lends enough for the flavors to soak thoroughly into the meat. Such an easy, versatile and affordable meal...the left-over options are limitless!
Thick Cut Boneless Pork Chops in Brown Sugar, Garlic and Soy
1 lb boneless pork chops
1/4 cup soy sauce
3-4 large cloves chopped garlic
3/4 cup brown sugar
Whisk together soy sauce, olive oil, garlic and brown sugar. Pour into a large Ziploc bag, place pork in bag and marinade for at least 4 hours (the thinner the meat the shorter the time - longer is better for roasts and thick cuts - preferably the morning of or night before.) Here we cooked chops over a charcoal grill approx 8 minutes on each side (or until meat thermometer reads 150, the meat's temp will continue to rise off the heat for the first few minutes.)
