Best Pork Chop Recipe for Tangy Chops
The best pork chop recipe for anyone who loves Asian-inspired cuisine is explained right here. If you enjoy soy sauce on your pork chops, seriously consider giving this recipe a chance. I, myself, am not the world’s biggest pork chop fan. This recipe is my new favorite go-to for pork chops and it’s always turned out wonderful. It only requires a few, inexpensive ingredients and 15 minutes of marinating time before preparation.
Since I enjoy this recipe so much, it is a bit more personal but I will still leave the measurements up to you! Just a little fun fact, soy sauce is very salty and makes the pork taste a bit different. It is still wonderfully delicious, though.
Ingredients for Tangy Pork Chop Recipe:
- I prefer to use boneless, thin-cut pork chops for this recipe.
- If you have half a bottle or so of soy sauce, great. If not, you may want to grab some more because the side dishes you can serve with these chops also go great with soy sauce!
- Rice wine vinegar aka rice vinegar. This is for the marinade and is used a lot in seasoning sushi rice.
- Oil. Sesame is my go-to because of my complete dish goal, but I’m sure you can make due with others.
- Seasoning. I personally like to combine a little garlic, Adobo seasoning, and black pepper.
- A sealable bag or dish is ideal for marinating.
- I always suggest a meat thermometer, too.
Pork Chop Preparation
- Prepare the pork chops as you’d like. I rinse and season them.
- I then combine the soy sauce, rice vinegar, oil, and pork chops into the sealable bag. I seal, gently shake, and turn it several times before putting it in the fridge for 15 or more minutes.
- Warm a pan or skillet to medium to medium-high heat.
- Remove the pork chops from the marinade and toss all the extra stuff out. I re-season my chops at this point, very lightly, for a little extra flavor. This makes them especially flavorful if you don’t have more than 15 minutes to let them marinate.
- I’ve finally quit turning my meats excessively. Turn the chops once, if the sides are looking pretty well cooked.
- A few minutes after turning, you should be able to enjoy your tangy pork chops! Just be sure to check that the internal temperature is at least 145-160°F before you eat them.
Since I love Asian-cuisine, I like a lot of stir-fry. I personally think these pork chops are superb with a frozen bag of stir fry mix (with a little garlic and soy added) on the side. Rice, of course, goes well with these pork chops as well. Hopefully you think this is the best pork chop recipe as well! Thank you and enjoy!
