honey-soy glazed pork chops

I like trying new recipes on my family.  Anything with an asian twist that I can serve over rice.  I think I ate rice every day growing up.  Well, maybe not every day, but close to it.  So I’m going to go off on a tangent right now since we are talking about rice.  My dad told me about this website called freerice.com.  SUPPOSEDLY you go to this website and answer a bunch of questions and for each question you get right, you donate 10 grains of rice.  Who knows if it’s true or not, but I just donated 50 grains of rice to hungry people.  For some pretty cheap entertainment and the knowledge that you are possibly helping hungry people in the world, it’s pretty fun.

So I made these honey-soy glazed pork chops the other night for dinner.  They turned out pretty good and since they had honey in them, the kidlets gobbled them up.  I served them over rice.

Start with some boneless pork chops.  Mine were a little thick, so I cut them in half.

Create the marinade – mixing soy sauce, water, honey, ginger, ketchup (and sriracha if you feel like it).

Add the pork chops and let marinade for at least an hour.

I put these in a grill pan and grilled both sides.  You could do these on the barbecue grill or throw them in the oven at 375 degrees for about 25-30 minutes (or until done).

Recipe:

Mix together soy sauce, water, honey, ketchup and ginger in a mixing bowl.  Add pork chops and let marinade for at least an hour.  Grill until cooked through.  Serve over rice and garnish with sliced green onions.
