Asian Marinated Pork Chops

Okay, this is another easy and yummy marinade. It calls for hoisin sauce, which I had never used before, but I'm so glad we tried it. It's a nice gentle marinade, you get great flavor without it being overly salty (like some Asian marinades are) or masking the flavor of the meat itself. Both Nate and I gobbled this right up, it was so good, and it helped that Nate cooked these pork chops perfectly! I got the idea over at For the Love of Cooking, and just tweaked a couple things. I also think this marinade would be great on chicken.

2 thick cut, boneless pork chops*
2 cloves of garlic minced
1 Tbsp. olive oil
1 tsp. sriracha sauce (as Asian hot sauce that you can find in the Asian aisle of any grocery store)
1 Tbsp. hoisin sauce
1/4 tsp. powdered ginger
3 tsp. soy sauce

Add everything but the meat to a gallon sized ziploc bag. Seal and shake well to combine. Add your pork chops , make sure they get evenly coated. Marinate for 2 hours in the refrigerator. Grill or cook on the stove top and enjoy!

*I made three pork chops so that Nate could have leftovers. Also, if you happen to use a thinner pork chop, you won't need to marinate them as long.
