Soy Sauce-Marinated Pork Chops
Soy sauce is such a versatile flavor, and goes so well with marinades on a lot of meats, but especially pork! Soy sauce can either be the star of the marinade or a contributing flavor.
- 4 (6-ounces) 1/2 inch thick bone-in pork chops, trimmed
- 1/4 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
- 3 tablespoons lime juice
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1 tablespoon canola oil
- 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
- 2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger
- 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
- 4 cups mixed spring greens
- 1/2 cup chopped cilantro

Place pork in a 3-quart rectangular baking dish. In a small bowl whisk together the soy sauce, lime juice, sugar, oil, vinegar, ginger, and crushed red pepper. Spoon 2 tablespoons of the mixture over pork and turn several times to coat. Cover pork and let stand 20 minutes at room temperature, turning occasionally.
Place the remaining soy sauce mixture in a small saucepan. Bring to boiling. Boil gently for 1 to 2 minutes or until reduced to 1/4 cup; set aside.
For a charcoal or gas grill, grill chops on the rack of a covered grill directly over medium heat for about 3 minutes per side or until pork is slightly pink in the center (145 degrees F), turning once.
Place greens on a serving platter, top with pork, and drizzle with boiled soy sauce mixture. Sprinkle with cilantro.
