Grilled Soy Pork Chops

This recipe is as dummy-proof as it looks. You can certainly jazz it up with the addition of ginger or red pepper flakes, but I think it is perfect in its simplicity. Plus, since you are grilling them on a real grill, that gives them another smoky dimension that is great with the soy. I couldn't live without my plastic bag marinades. Both short-term in the fridge and long-term in the freezer. If you put the bag with the marinating chops right in the freezer, you can pop it out the night before and it will be perfectly marinated and defrosted when you get home at the end of the next day. This proves to be a life saver when I've been too lazy to get to the store or when it is just a really bust week and I don't have time to think. These chops would be nice with plain white or brown rice, cous cous, or rice pilaf.Grilled Soy Pork Chops
2 pork chops
3 Tbs. soy sauce
1 Tbs. sesame oil
1.4 tsp. black pepper

1. Add chops, soy, sesame oil, and pepper to a plastic bag. Let this marinate in the fridge overnight or all day while you are at work.
2. Heat your charcoals and when they are super hot, add the pork chop to the grill and cook for 3-4 minutes per side.
3. When the chops are cooked, remove them to a plate and let them rest for 5 minutes before serving.
Done and done.
