Teriyaki Grilled Pork chops made with bone in center cut pork chops marinated in a homemade teriyaki glaze.
Admit it. You can't wait to dive into these Teriyaki Grilled Pork Chops. Am I right? Well let me tell you that they taste just as good as they look!
I've been in an 'Asian-cuisine' type of mood lately and wanted to make a simple recipe for grilled pork chops for dinner, but didn't have any teriyaki sauce. So, I made my own!
These grilled pork chops were super easy to make, juicy and delicious! This teriyaki glaze would taste wonderful on grilled chicken, ribs, steak or even seafood; it's pretty versatile. The best part is that dinner is ready in 20 minutes!
These Teriyaki Glazed Pork Chops were FABULOUS and my family really enjoyed them.
Because my husband and our eldest daughter usually get home much later for dinner and have to usually reheat their meal, I cooked ours to the minimum temperature.
Then, I refrigerated them and baked them in the oven when they were ready to eat their dinner. Perfect and juicy!
How do you make Teriyaki glaze?
To make teriyaki glaze you'll need soy sauce, honey, ginger and cornstarch.
You can also add some sake (Japanese wine) as well, but I didn't have any. This is my make-shift version using ingredients I had in my pantry. Looks and tasted good to me!
Combine the ingredients together in a small saucepan, whisk, bring to a boil; then simmer until your desired consistency. I wanted mine to be thicker, more like a glaze, so that I could baste it on my pork chops as they were cooking and it only took about 7 minutes.
If you want to use the teriyaki glaze as a marinade, cook the mixture for only 1-2 minutes then allow to cool completely before marinating the meat.
How do you make Teriyaki Grilled Pork Chops?
Once your teriyaki glaze is ready, preheat your grill to 375-400 degrees F; then brush the glaze on the pork chops.
Cook; flipping halfway until desired doneness (minimum temperature 145 degrees F). Allow to rest for 5 minutes before serving.
I mentioned earlier that I've been in the mood for Asian cuisine so I served these pork chops with Sesame Ginger Sauteed Haricot Verts and steamed rice. Here are some more serving suggestions:
Salads: Oriental Salad, Spicy Peanut Noodle Salad or a tossed salad with homemade Applebee's Dressing
Vegetables: Chili Garlic Green Beans, Sesame Roasted Cauliflower or Sweet & Sour Roasted Carrots
Starch: Fried Rice or Wasabi Cheddar Twice Baked Potatoes
