Teriyaki Grilled Porkchops

I found these porkchops on Annie's Eats. These were really really good and they were a big hit at dinner, the marinade had such a good flavor. I'll admit that I have a problem and never marinate the amount of time I'm supposed to. I marinate for an hour and then baste like a madwoman which is what I did this time. They still were really good. We're still in an apartment so I obviously don't have access to a grill, but we've been using our grill pan a lot lately and it does a great job. Excuse the awful picture. I remembered to take a picture halfway through dinner so what you see is Casey's plate with rice and salad after he had already eaten one of his porkchops. Oh well, you get the idea!

4-6 Servings

2/3 cup soy sauce
1/3 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1/3 cup water
¼ cup rice vinegar
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
2-inch piece fresh gingerroot, peeled and chopped fine (or 1 ½ tsp. dried ginger)
4-6 pork chops

For the marinade, combine all ingredients except pork chops in a saucepan. Bring to a boil and stir until sugar is dissolved. Cool the marinade completely. Put the pork chops in a large resealable plastic bag and pour the marinade over them. Seal the bag, pressing out excess air. Allow chops to marinate, turning bag once or twice, at least 6 hours or up to overnight.

Pour the marinade into a saucepan and boil for 5 minutes. Grill chops on an oiled rack, approximately 7-8 minutes per side, or until just cooked through, basting with marinade during last 5 minutes of cooking.

I'm pretty sure this was one of the best meals that I have ever had! I made it the other night here at the beach, and everyone loved it! Way to go buddy :)
