Get into the swing of the evening with some Singapore Slings or even Samoan Fogs! That should keep your guests guesing. Let that be followed by these luscious, tender teriyaki pork chops. Well, what are you waiting for?
Start with several (4) boneless center cut pork chops:
4 boneless center cut pork chops - 3/4in thick
1/3 cup rice vinegar vinegar
1/3 cup pineapple juice
2 Tbs teriyaki sauce - lite is fine
1 Tbs peanut or canola oil
1 Tbs fresh ground black pepper
1 tsp toasted sesame seeds
2 cloves garlic - minced
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. cayenne
1/4 tsp salt
Combine all ingredients (except chops) in a bowl and mix thoroughly. Place chops and marinade in a plastic bag and marinate in the refrigerator for 2 to 6 hours - turning occasionally. Fire up the grill and cook over medium to medium-hot coals. Cook until the center reaches 150° or until the chops are only slightly pink inside and the juices run clear. Enjoy!
NOTE: Resist overcooking. The secret to grilling pork is to do it quickly, mere minutes for thick chops. Being lean, pork dries out and toughens if left on a hot grid too long.
