Teriyaki Pork Chops Recipe

A teriyaki marinade and sauce is a great way to prepare flavorful and delicious pork chops on the grill. This recipe calls for very few ingredients and chances are if you like to cook Asian food, you probably have most of them on hand. The pork chops are marinated in a mixture of oil, soy sauce, ketchup, vinegar, and garlic. The pork chops are also brushed with the marinade while they are on the grill for even more delicious teriyaki flavor. What I really liked about this recipe is that it does not call for any sugar and still tastes great. You can use boneless pork chops or pork chops with the bone-in for this recipe. This is an extremely easy and quick recipe that is great for summer cook-outs. Enjoy.  Adapted from Budget Gourmet Mom.

¼ cup canola oil
¼ cup soy sauce
3 tablespoons ketchup
1 tablespoon white vinegar
1 garlic clove (minced)
ground black pepper (to taste)
4-5 large boneless pork chops
sesame seeds (for garnish)
sliced green onions (for garnish)

Cooking Instructions:

Step 1: In a large bowl bag mix together canola oil, soy sauce, ketchup, vinegar, and garlic. Whisk until combined. Add the pork chops to the marinade and toss to coat. Cover the bowl. Place into the refrigerator and marinade for 30 minutes.
Step 2: Lightly grease the grill grates of an outdoor grill. Preheat the grill to medium-high heat.  Remove pork chops from the marinade, reserve the marinade. Season the pork chops with black pepper and place onto the grill.
Step 3: Cook the pork chops for a few minutes on each side, brushing with the marinade before flipping, until they are fully cooked (the internal temperature has reached 145 degrees). Top with sesame seeds and sliced green onions.

    if i used vegetable oil instead of canola,will it make a significant difference?

    jas- It would not make a significant difference. Vegetable oil is fine.

    The marinade did a good job flavoring the chops, even though they only sit for 30mins. However, even using low sodium soy, they were a little too salty.
