Printed from Jenn's Food Journey, adapted from Mary, One Perfect Bite
- Serves 2 -


3 Tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
1 Tablespoon cornstarch
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 Tablespoon granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
2 boneless pork loin chops
For the sauce -
3 Tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
2 Tablespoons chili paste (such as Sambal Oelek)
1/2 teaspoon honey
drop of sesame oil

Mix together the 3 tablespoons soy, cornstarch, pepper, sugar and salt until well combined. Rinse pork chops and pat dry with a paper towel. Place pork in a resealable plastic bag or shallow dish and pour the marinade over. Seal the bag or cover the dish and place in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.

Preheat grill to 375 degrees F. Clean and oil grill grates. Remove pork from bag and discard the marinade. Place the pork over direct heat and grill 5-8 minutes per side (depending on thickness) or until the pork reaches an internal temperature of 145 degrees F. Remove from grill and allow to rest 3-5 minutes before serving.

While the pork is grilling, make the sauce by putting all ingredients for the sauce in a small bowl and stirring to combine. Serve along side grilled pork and enjoy!
