Recipe: Soy Ginger Pork Chop

13 Jan

Getting the girls to eat anything other then pasta with butter, mac & cheese, or pizza is usually a challenge.  I usually have to add some type of fun twist to the meal.  When I made this Soy Ginger Pork Chop for them they devoured it, which rarely happens, so I thought it would be good to share.  When I have made it in the past I usually just throw together the ingredients but I measured it out when I made it the other day.

Ingredients:

  • 4 thinly cut pork chops (about 1 lb) *Whole Foods has thick ones so I ask the butcher to cut them in 1/2
  • 2-4 TBS low sodium Soy Sauce (I love soy sauce, so I always use a lot, just use enough to coat pork chops on both sides)
  • 2 TBS No Pulp Orange Juice
  • Fresh Ginger, zest amount to taste, I always use a lot
  • 1 clove fresh garlic
  • Optional: Wasabi to taste if you want to add spice, but I leave it out of the girls
  • Rice (I used Seeds of Change Quinoa and Whole Grain Rice)
  • Edamame

Directions:

  1. Mix Soy Sauce, Orange Juice, Ginger, Garlic and *Wasabi* together in a small bowl.
  2. Place Pork Chops in a storage container or zip lock back, I used tupperware.
  3. Evenly distribute mixture over both sides of the pork chops.  I flip the pork  chops in the mixture to evenly coat.  Add more ingredients if wanted or needed.  I add more ginger on top of each chop.
  4. Let Pork Chops for a couple hours.
  5. Add a little olive oil to a pan, heat, and cook pork chops through
  6. Serve with Rice and Edamame
  7. I used FunBites CubeIt to cute the girls pork chops.

Disclaimer:  I am not a professional chef, I enjoy cooking and baking with the girls.  I also like trying new things and throwing ingredients together to make new meals.  Try at your own risk, but I hope you enjoy 🙂
