What's this, another marinade post?

Must be grilling season! Jon not only loves grilling, but as you can probably tell by the number of marinade posts in my blog, he loves creating marinades.

Tonight's marinade was for pork chops -

  • 1/4 c olive oil
  • 1 tbsp mirin
  • 2 tbsp sake
  • 3 cloves garlic, pressed
  • 1 tsp chili-garlic sauce
  • 1 tbsp freshly chopped cilantro
Warning - sake is highly flammable! We had some good sized flames on our grill when Jon first put the chops on. He grilled them on high at first to sear them, and then did them low and slow - about 15 minutes on low.

This marinade gave a very light flavor with just a bit of a kick, but not too much. We both agree that it would work well on chicken.

I served the chops with these noodles with snow peas and red peppers.
