The hoisin sauce added to this pork chop marinade gives it a richness that helps bring all the flavors together.



Teriyaki Pork Chops Marinade

This recipe makes enough marinade for up to 4 pounds of chops.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup of pineapple juice
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup hoisin sauce
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger, grated
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper


Whisk the marinade ingredients together to combine. Marinate the chops for 2 to 4 hours. Larger cuts can be marinated longer.

Preheat your grill to medium high, and cook the marinated chops for a total of 8 to 12 minutes, turning often to prevent burning of the sweet marinade. Shoot for an internal temperature of 145 to 160 degrees for medium rare to medium doneness.
