Marinated Pork Chops

Marinated Pork Chops

Pork chops were on sale for $1.69/ lb at the store this week, so that became our quick and easy pre-church dinner for tonight.  I served them with baked sweet potatoes and some roasted (10 minutes at 425) asparagus that I tossed with garlic, red pepper flakes, and sesame oil to mirror the Oriental flavors in the pork marinade.  This marinade would also be great on chicken or steak, and would be great on anything cooked on the grill.

-6 pork chops
-4 Tbsp ketchup
-2 Tbsp soy sauce
-1 tsp Sriarcha sauce
-4 Tbsp brown sugar
-2 Tbsp rice vinegar
-2 tsp lime juice
-1 Tbsp sesame oil
-1/2 tsp ground ginger
-2 cloves garlic, minced

To make marinade, whisk together all ingredients beside pork chops.  Let pork chops soak in marinade for 2-8 hours.  Bake pork chops at 350 for 45-60 minutes, turning over halfway through cooking.
