Teriyaki Pork Chops

Teriyaki Pork Chops

Japanese-style pork chops, marinated then grilled.

Teriyaki [tehr-ee-YAK-kee] is a Japanese dish consisting of meat, that has been marinated in a mixture of soy sauce, Japanese wine, sugar, and ginger. The recipe calls for «mirin», a sweet wine made from rice, which gives the cooked food a sweet flavour and a slight glaze. Mirin can be found in Asian food markets. If you cannot find it, you may replace it with «sake», sherry or a sweet white wine.

Ingredients

  resealable plastic bag    
2 pork chops with bones   360 g
1/2 clove garlic, finely chopped    
1 tbsp gingerroot, minced   14 g
1 tbsp brown sugar   12 g
2 tbsp apple cider vinegar   30 mL
1/4 cup soy sauce, low-sodium   65 mL
1 1/2 tbsp mirin (sweet rice wine), or sherry   23 mL
1 tbsp canola oil   15 mL

Before you start

Keep the serving plates in the oven at the lowest setting so they are warm when you serve.

Method

  1. Place the pork chops in a resealable plastic bag. Finely chop the garlic and mince the ginger then put them in a small bowl. Add the brown sugar, vinegar, soy sauce, and mirin (or Sherry) then stir until the brown sugar is dissolved. Pour the mixture into the bag, then seal it and turn it to coat the pork chops with the marinade. Let stand 30 min at room temperature or chill in the refrigerator 3 h to overnight.
  2. Pour out the marinade from the bag into a small saucepan, bring to a boil, then simmer 2 min. Set aside.
  3. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a skillet over moderate heat until hot but not smoking. Add the pork chops then sauté until just cooked through, 3-4 min per side, depending on the thickness. Serve on the warmed plates. Drizzle the chops with the hot marinade.
