Garlic-Soy Pork Chops By: Andrea E.
I cook this when I have nothing in the house and have nothing prepared. It is pretty quick. I sometimes do not even marinate an hour before. I like it because it is salty (good to replenish salt, since I lose a lot due to exercise and having cystic fibrosis), a good source of protein and very satisfying. Plus, these are four ingredients that I usually have at home, aside from chops. It's easy and delicious.
- 2 center cut pork chops (3/4" to 1" thickness preferred)
- 1/3 c sake
- 1/4 c Kikkoman soy sauce
- 6 garlic cloves
- 1/2 tsp dried rosemary
- Add All Ingredients
Line a shallow pan with tin foil.
Place soy sauce and sake in pan and add pork chops to marinate for one hour, turn over after 30 minutes. Keep in fridge while marinating.
After an hour peel garlic cloves and put them through a garlic press.
Take pressed garlic and put in the pork chops, distributing over the tops of both chops.
Sprinkle about 1/2 teaspoon rosemary on top of chops.
Place in broiler at 500 degrees for 5-10 minutes to sear and cook (depending on thickness of chop, time could be less).
Turn over and add garlic and rosemary to the other side of chop. Cook second side about 5-10 minutes and then check with meat thermometer. Should read 160-170 degrees in middle of chop.
Good with mashed potatoes, greens (sautéed kale w/garlic) and applesauce.
