This recipe is easily in my Top 5 Favourite Recipes of all time. The flavours that explode in your mouth is so amazing. I would be hard pressed to ever make another Pork Chop Recipe.
This dish goes very good with a nice little cucumber, tomato and red onion Vietnamese salad.
- 6-8 porkchops (bone-in, boneless, thick or thin it doesn’t matter
- 3-4 garlic cloves minced
- 2 stalks of lemongrass thinly sliced
- 1 large shallot diced
- 1 tablespoon of chili garlic sauce
- 1 tsp of sea salt
- 1 tablespoon of sugar
- 1/4 cup of fish sauce
- 2 tablespoons of canola oil
This is so simple, in a food processor add the garlic, lemongrass slices(peel of the hard layers and slice the soft inner lemongrass), shallot amd chili garlic sauce and blend. Then add the salt, sugar, fish sauce and oil. Blend until combined. In a large zip lock bag or marinating dish put the porkchops in and pour over the marinade. You can let it sit for a few hours or over night, I let it marinade for a few days the first time I made it and it turned out wonderful.
Heat a grill/bbq to a high temperature, the hotter the better to great those great grill marks. You will get a nice char on the porkchops for an even better flavour that way. Depending on the thickness of the pork chops it could take up to 5-8 mins to cook. Now when cooking there is no need to flipping or turning the pork chops. Turn them once on each side to get the cross hatch look and that’s it.
Enjoy an amazing Pork Chop.
Goes great with a Tomato, Cucumber Vietnamese Salad. Also a nice Ginger Scallion sauce increases the tastiness to the final product. I’ll provide those recipes at a later date and edit this page to include it.
