I rarely eat pork, but this week I’ve had a craving for some “POKECHOPS”! I haven’t had pork chops in years! Not really sure what brought on this craving, all I know is I wanted them in my belly!  I hit up my friend Tony (who has a recipe for everything) for a recipe. He delivered the recipe for “Tony’s Special Unnamed Poke Chops”. Before cooking Tony’s Special Unnamed Poke Chops I had to marinate it for 24 hours, like so:

Ingredients-1/4 cup soy sauce, 1/4 cup sugar, 1/4 cup oyster sauce, zest from 1 lemon, 3 cloves garlic, chopped, black pepper


1.In a large bowl, mix all the ingredients together.  Whisk them for about 1 minute to ensure that the sugar has completely dissolved into the mixture.  As for the pepper…just a couple of sprinkles should do you fine.
2.Put the pork chops in your ziploc bag along with the marinade.  Roll it around to make sure that the pork chops are covered in the marinade.  Put in the fridge for 12 hours.
3. Flip the bag over to marinate the other side of the chops.  Put back in the fridge for another 12 hours.
Time to cook the chops!
4. Cook the chops!  NOM NOM! (but how to cook them!? When I asked Tony, he replied, “cook it however you want…skillet, pan, grill, candle. whatevs ) I cooked them on skillet and then transferred  them to the grill. Why? I was afraid I didn’t cook the pork thoroughly in the skillet.
Guys, I was a little worried about this recipe. I was afraid that I wouldn’t like an asian inspired pork chop. But it was fantastic! The marinade was delicious. I could taste it throughout the whole pork chop. It was sweet with an asian kick. I loved these porkchops and will definitely cook them again and again! Tony invented this recipe on accident. He was trying to recreate pork kalbi (korean dish) and failed. What a yummy accident!
