Garlic ginger pork chops

    1 hour

    The longer you marinade pork chops in this garlicky, gingery mixture the better the results. You can bake the chops with a sesame and breadcrumb crust, or you can skip this step and go straight to the barbecue. Use light soy sauce, if you prefer.

    Serves: 4 

    • 4 thick cut pork loin chops
    • 225ml (8 fl oz) soy sauce
    • 8 slices fresh root ginger
    • 4 cloves garlic, sliced
    • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    • 100g (4 oz) dried breadcrumbs
    • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds

    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:45min  ›  Ready in:1hr 

    1. Place pork chops, soy sauce, ginger, garlic and black pepper into a large, resealable, plastic bag. Shake the bag gently to combine everything, and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. (It's even better if you do it in the morning and leave in the refrigerator to sit all day.)
    2. Heat oven to 180 C / Gas mark 4.
    3. In a shallow dish, combine breadcrumbs and sesame seeds. Remove chops from marinade, making sure there are no ginger slices clinging to the meat, and lay them in the crumb mixture to coat. If you like, place pieces of garlic from the marinade on the chops. Place chops on a baking tray.
    4. Bake for approximately 45 minutes, or until done.

    Altered ingredient amounts. Didn't use as much soy sauce as advised by Marciado in the reviews.  -  16 Dec 2009


    you really do need to cut back on the soy sause. Maybe just 1/2 as much next time. However, family still enjoyed it.  -  24 Jul 2008
