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.

240 calories/serving


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 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.


  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.

needs to marinade longer if you want pork to have fuller flavor but really good if you like ginger

Not bad - partner found it extremely salty, despite using low sodium soy sauce. I don't think I would make it again.

Followed recipe exactly while using sherry. Wonderful flavor especially with the marinade sauce poured over the chops. Had it with white rice - sauce went very well with it. Highly recommended!
