Ready for the easiest and best pork marinade recipe ever???
I hope your answer was YES! Literally this recipe will change your life. I know you are probably thinking that is an over exaggeration, but trust me when I say this is so easy and you will begin to prepare this recipe every week for the next few months. First off let's get into how few ingredients this recipe uses.
The marinade only had 3 ingredients. Which means big time savor, big wallet savor, and you probably already have these 3 ingredients in your kitchen right now. Which also means you don't have to make a run to the grocery store to fill up your cart with loads of groceries and items that you may not use again for another recipe. No worries there, because soy/tamari, garlic, and honey are ones you will definitely use on a regular basis.
Second best thing about this recipe is how easy it is. The pork chops literally only need 20 minutes to marinate and then you can cook. The cooking time for this deliciously healthy meal is under 15 minutes, which for me and I know you for you too is awesome.
Make this recipe with a ginger carrot mash, mashed potatoes, udon noodles a big hearty leafy green salad, or a bowl of vegetable quinoa. You can't go wrong with this 20 minute Korean Style Marinaded Pork. Oh and since we are in the middle of summer put these pork chops on the grill and just wait to see how delicious they are!
Time 35 Minutes
4 Bone in Pork Chops
1/3 cup Soy or Tamari Sauce (I used tamari- a gluten free product)
2 garlic cloves - chopped
2 TBLS honey
1 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 medium yellow onion - sliced
2 TBLS Olive oil
1 teaspoon toasted sesame seeds - for garnish
1. Place in bag the 4 bone in pork chops with the marinade (1/3 soy sauce, honey, garlic, half the salt, pepper). Get all the air out of the bag and seal the ziplock. Place the bag in the fridge on a plate and let it sit for 20 minutes.
2. Meanwhile cut the peaches in slivers and slice the onion.
3. Once the pork chops have marinated it is time to get cooking. In a large skillet or ceramic pan heat the olive oil. Once hot on medium-high place the pork chops on the skillet. Let them cook for about 3-4 minutes on that side to sear. Season lightly with salt and pepper. Flip the pork chops, add the peaches, and onions and lower the heat to medium-low. Let this cook uncovered for about 3-5 minutes.
Then add in half of the marinade and cook for another 4-5 minutes allowing the marinade to reduce. Once the pork chops have cooked to your desired doneness remove them from the pan and cook the peaches and onions for another 5 minutes.
Serve family style over ginger carrot mash and garnish with sesame seeds.
