Teriyaki Pork Chops

I bought some thick cut pork chops and decided they would taste great grilled. I’ve never made teriyaki sauce before and was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was. My husband did an excellent job of grilling (like always) and we were all really happy with the result. The pork was tender, moist and full of flavor.

Teriyaki Sauce

  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • 3 scallions, diced
  • 1 tbsp garlic, chopped finely
  • 2 tsp fresh ginger, chopped finely
  • Juice of one navel orange

Combine all ingredients in a large zip lock bag. Marinate for at least 1-24 hours prior to grilling. Let the meat sit at room temperature for 10 minutes prior to grilling. My husband grilled for about 10 minutes per side (1 1/4 inch thick cut chops) until we reached an internal temp of 155; we then let it rest for 5 minutes before cutting. The pork was excellent served with brown rice and roasted asparagus. Enjoy.

    Those look delicious! I learned to make teriyaki by mistake thinking orange, soy sauce and brown sugar would taste good and i realized it tasted just like chinese food. :)

    I’m always on the lookout for grilling recipes at this time of year, as it is just too hot to cook indoors. Good job.

    Those look good. Teriyaki is one of my favorite ways to add some flavour meat but I have not tried it with pork chops yet.
