Asian Slaw:


  1. To make marinade: Whisk first 9 ingredients (excluding pork) together in medium bowl. Pour into one-gallon sealable plastic bag. Add pork chops, coating pork in marinade. Close bag and refrigerate, turning bag occasionally, for at least 2 and up to 6 hours. To make pork: Prepare outdoor grill for direct cooking over medium-high heat, about 450 degrees F. Brush grill grates clean. Remove pork from marinade - do not shake off excess marinade. Discard remaining marinade. Grill, with grill lid closed, turning once, until the internal temperature reads between 145 degrees F. (medium rare) to 160 degrees F. (medium) on a digital meat thermometer, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and let rest 3 minutes. If making with Asian slaw, divide slaw among 4 dinner plates. Top each with a chop, sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve immediately.

Cook’s Note

*Also known as gochujang, available at Asian markets and in the international aisle in most supermarkets Serving suggestions: Serve the chops with white or brown rice, sprinkled with sesame seeds. A simple vegetable, such as asparagus or snow peas, is a nice addition, too.
