Ingredients

Pork Chops

  • 4 pork chops
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil for cooking

Marinade

  • 1 tsp Sriracha sauce
  • 2 cloves garlic crushed
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1.5 tbsp fish sauce
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 stalk lemongrass white part only, bruised them sliced into 1cm – ½ inch pieces (or 1 tsp lemongrass paste)

Instructions

  1. Place the marinade ingredients in a ziplock bag and massage the bag to mix the ingredients (or mix them all together in a bowl).
  2. Add the pork chops to the marinade and massage the bag to coat all the meat with the marinade.
  3. Marinate, in the fridge, for at least 4 hours (better overnight).
  4. Brush the outdoor grill with oil and heat to medium high (or use a griddle pan on a stove).
  5. Remove the pork from the marinade and drain it well.
  6. Place the pork on the grill and cook each side for 2 or 3 minutes, or until cooked (this will depend on the thickness of the chops). Remember that it will continue to cook while resting.
  7. Remove the pork from the grill. Put it onto a plate and cover loosely with foil. Rest for 5 minutes before serving.

Recipe Notes

I often freeze the meat with the marinade. Then I defrost it and bring the meat back to room temperature before cooking it.
