A simple soy sauce-based marinade and fast cooking on the grill make for a juicy, tender pork chop.


  • 2-4 Bone-in Pork Chops, or up to 6 boneless Chops
  • 3/4 cup Soy Sauce
  • 1/2 cup Mirin
  • 1/4 cup Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 tbsp Sesame Oil
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
  • Sides
  • White or Brown Rice
  • 3 Cloves Garlic, thinly sliced
  • 1-2 tbsp Grapeseed oil
  • 1 bunch Broccolini, or more if there's more than two people



At least 4 hours before cook time, prepare the marinade: mix together Soy Sauce, Mirin, Apple Cider Vinegar, Sesame Oil and Worcestershire Sauce.


Place chops in a large Ziplock bag or container and pour in marinade. Squeeze out as much air as possible (or cover if using a container). Zip and Refrigerate overnight or for at least 4 hours.


Set up your grill with a hot zone and cool zone. Set Grill grates over hot zone. Get the temperature of the hot zone up to 500-700 degrees.


Sear pork chops for three minutes on each side, then move to the cool zone to finish cooking. Pork chops are done when the internal temperature reaches 140 degrees (about 6-8 minutes). Let chops rest to finish cooking, internal temp will be 145-150.

Broccolini Side


Heat grapeseed oil in skillet over medium-high heat.


Fry garlic slices for 10-20 seconds, until golden.


Use the same pan, or transfer oil to a larger pan and sauté Broccolini over medium-high until it takes on some color.


Reduce the heat to low and cover. Cook until just tender.


Serve with rice.


You can do the pork chops in a grill pan by heating the pan over high heat and searing each side for 3 minutes. Then transfer the chops to a 300-325 degree oven for about 8-10 minutes, until the internal temperature reaches 140 degrees. Let chops rest to finish cooking, internal temp will be 145-150.
