stephmodo: Ginger Cilantro Pork Chops

Ginger Cilantro Pork Chops

• 25 May 2008

At my sister's house this week I decided to create an Asian-inspired version of the Donna Hay pork chops I made last week. Cher's veggie drawer contained a considerable amount of ginger root just begging to be used and since I can't resist the wonderful aroma of freshly grated ginger...

Dinner needed to cover 7 adults and 10 kids so I doubled the recipe below.

Cilantro Ginger Pork Chops

1 cup finely chopped cilantro
1/4 cup grated ginger (peel skin with potato peeler before using a box grater)
2 TB soy sauce
1/2 cup olive oil
coarse salt and pepper

Marinade chops in the refrigerator (in a ziploc bag) for 2-3 hours. Throw them on the grill for about 10 minutes. Enjoy!

Note: Reserve a little marinade and toss into a bowl with potato wedges and a little extra olive oil. Roast on 425 for 40 minutes or until lightly browned. The size of your potato wedges will determine the cooking time--small wedges = less time in the oven; large wedges = more time in the oven.

  1. This looks really good. Thanks for the recipe - I'll have to try it.

  2. I have some left-over fresh cilantro... might have to try this tomorrow night!

  3. yum! that combines all of my favorite things. i can't wait to give it a try! thanks for sharing.

  4. Oooh. . . I can't wait to try this one! Now I have to go to Costco to pick up some of their thick-cut chops!

  5. Michiko, we used those very chops...but cut them in half length-wise to make them stretch since had a large crowd to feed. I find smaller chops to be more flavorful anyway so it worked out. Love Costco meat...

  6. i am so glad you posted this recipe! i am always stumped with how to flavor up pork chops. i'm giving it a try tomorrow.

  7. those look amazing. i'll have to try those.
    i also like pork chops marinated in fish sauce and other things, vietnamese style.. so good.

  8. Cher made these chicken-style on Saturday night and I had to make it again for my parents and sister tonight. So so good!


Thanks so much for taking the time to drop a line. I really appreciate it!
