Oh Boy! These Grilled Pork Chops with Thai Honey Lime Marinade were some of the tastiest grilled pork chops I’ve had in a long time!
I’m trying to use up what I have in the freezer and I came across some thick cut boneless pork chops I had purchased from Costco. I found this recipe in the same cookbook that I found the green bean recipe I raved about earlier (cookbook is called “Hot Barbecue”).
I made a marinade and I let them sit a couple hours in the refrigerator, then took them out to warm up a bit before grilling. Save a little of the marinade and brush it on the chops throughout the cooking process. It gives them a nice coating. I also think it’s important to be careful and not overcook pork or you’ll have dried, tough pork chops. Take them off at 140-145 degrees and let them sit a bit so the juices redistribute.
I served these grilled pork chops with rice and some roasted broccolini (you could steam the the veggie if you want). I also had a little extra marinade so I boiled it (since it had the raw pork chops in it) then poured a little on my rice. Yum!Print
Pork Chops with Thai Honey Lime Marinade
- 4 thick pork chops
- 3 limes, juiced and zested
- 1 C. hoisin sauce
- 1/4 C. oyster sauce
- 1/4 C. dry sherry
- 1/4 C. honey
- 1 Tbls. Asian chile sauce
- 1/4 C. minced fresh ginger
- 6 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/4 C. finely chopped shallots
- 1/4 C. combination of chopped fresh cilantro, basil and mint
- Combine the marinade ingredients and marinate the pork chops (save some marinade aside to brush on chops when grilling) for at least an hour. I had my chops marinating in the refrigerator for a couple hours. When ready to grill, pull chops out of fridge and let them warm up.
- Heat grill to about 400 degrees and grill chops until slightly pink in center, about 10-12 minutes (flip half way through cooking). I cook to 140 degrees then remove from grill and let them rest a bit. They turn our moist and juicy. Don’t overcook! Frequently brush chops with reserved marinade while cooking.
- Any extra marinade can be boiled, then used to pour over rice, if desired.
