Grilled Mongolian Pork Chops

Despite the fact that I wish I could have found thicker cut pork chops for this dish, and despite the fact that the color of the sauce isn't the most eye appealing, I was very pleased with the out come of this meal.  I, as most of you know, love the flavors used in this recipe.  And, honestly, it doesn't get much easier than this... marinate, grill, eat... how can you go wrong?

Grilled Mongolian Pork Chops
Adapted from 
Printable Recipe 
1/4 cup Hoisin sauce
1 garlic clove, finely minced
1 Tablespoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon rice vinegar
1 teaspoon mirin
1/4 teaspoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon Sriracha
1 teaspoon granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
white pepper and salt
4 thin cut pork chops, bone-in (if you can find thick cut, get them!!!)

In a bowl or measuring cup, mix together all the ingredients except the pepper, salt and pork chops.  Stir until well combined.  Season both sides of the pork with white pepper and salt and place in resealable plastic bag.  Pour half of the marinade mixture over and seal the bag.  Place in refrigerator for 2-4 hours.  Set the remaining marinade aside - this will be your sauce :)

Preheat the grill to 375 degrees F.  Clean and oil the grill grates.  Remove pork from bag and discard marinade.  Place pork chops over direct heat and grill for 4-8 minutes per side (depending on thickness) or until they reach an internal temperature of 145 degrees F.  Remove from grill and allow to rest for 3-5 minutes.  Serve with reserved sauce and enjoy!

Despite all those facts, it looks good from here. The sauce looks like good ole southern gravy to me and no way that's bad.

Looks good to me, like a savory gravy. Nice grill marks.

Sounds good! I have some boneless chops (actually it's still a whole loin this second) and this might be what I make tomorrow!
