Serves: 4
Chilling Time: 2 hr
Cooking Time: 10 min

What You'll Need:

  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 4 (3/4-inch) pork loin chops (1-1/2 to 2 pounds total)
  • 3 tablespoons butter

What To Do:

  1. In a small bowl, combine soy sauce, lemon juice, ginger, and garlic; mix well.  
  2. Place chops in a 9- x 13-inch baking dish and pour soy sauce mixture over top, turning chops to coat thoroughly. Cover and chill 2 hours, turning after 1 hour. Remove chops from marinade and discard marinade.  
  3. In a large skillet over medium heat, melt butter; cook chops 5 to 7 minutes per side, or until cooked through. Serve immediately.

Notes:

  • If you prefer to not use butter to cook the pork chops, you can substitute either peanut oil or light sesame oil.
  • To make a sauce for the pork chops, resever the marinade and bring it to a boil. Simmer for 2 to 3 minutes, the pour over the chops
