Asian Glazed Pork Chops

Ingredient breakdown

  • Bone-in pork chops: The meat cut for this delicious recipe is pork chops. I prefer using bone-in meat chops as they offer great flavor. It’s better to use fresh produce for this recipe but you can go for frozen pork chops as well. also, make sure the pork chops aren’t too thick as they won’t cook faster this way
  • Hasty bake brine: The best way to ensure the pork chops are tender, and juicy is to let them sit in a brine for some time. a brine actually ensures the tough meat tenderizes without getting chewy and is juicy as well. using a brine is super easy. Just mix the powder in water and dip the pork chops.
  • Soy sauce: Soy sauce is an essential ingredient in any Asian recipe. it offers an umami flavor to your dishes. You can choose light soy sauce for subtle umami and slightly salty flavor.
  • Teriyaki sauce: Teriyaki sauce is sweet, tangy, salty, and has umami after taste that lingers on your tongue. You can get the hints of garlic, sesame, and citrus. Premade teriyaki sauce works best as it is easy to get and convenient. you can however use homemade teriyaki sauce as well.
  • Ground ginger: Ginger has a unique flavor. it adds sweetness with peppery flavor and heat to the pork chops.
  • Honey: Asian recipes are known for the right blend of sweetness with other flavors. And when we talk about a glaze, we need a sweet element to get the stickiness going on. For this recipe I have used honey as it offers so much flavor and the right consistency for this glazed pork chop recipe.
  • Garlic: Add deep savory flavor to this recipe by using freshly minced garlic. It works just right!
