Honey Ginger Pork

Honey Ginger PorkI shared this recipe a few months back.  But since I’m making it tonight, I thought I would share it again.

This is an incredible (and easy) pork recipe which gets raves every time I serve it. It is also adaptable to different cooking methods and time frames as well.

Note: My boys aren't real fond of the ginger taste, so I often reduce the amount down to around a half teaspoon. A little ginger goes a long way.

Ingredients:

  • 4 Pork Chops or Pork Loin Slices
  • 1/2 to 1 Teaspoon Ground Ginger
  • 2 Garlic Cloves, minced
  • 3 Tablespoons Soy Sauce
  • 1/2 Cup Honey
  • 2 Tablespoons Butter, melted

Melt the butter in a small sauce pan. Add the ginger, garlic, soy sauce and honey, and stir.

Marinade the meat from two hours to overnight. Bring the chops to room temperature, remove from the marinade, and grill. You can put the leftover marinade in a sauce pan, bring it to a boil and use it to baste the chops each time you flip them.

Or,

Put the chops in a baking dish, pour marinade over top, cover, and cook for 1/2 hour at 400 degrees. Uncover, cook another 15-30 minutes till done, turning several times to coat and glaze each sided of the meat. This is how I’m doing it today, because its so cool outside and a little oven heat will feel nice.

Of course, anything that has honey in it is right up my alley. It's like having desert...for dinner!

It goes wonderful with rice or mashed potatoes and a tossed salad.

That meal looks fabulous!!! I'm one of "those people" who don't like sweet on their meat, so I'd just roast the pork without the honey/spices - - - probably oozing in good brown gravy and serve it with your same sides. Yum. Almost makes me wish I was still cooking these days!!!!

i am not fond of ginger as well, but this looks good and my girlfriend wants to make it for dinner one of these days, can we use other substitute for ginger?

Chumpman,
I thinking you could just leave the ginger out. The soy, garlic and honey would probably be fine on their own.

Does anyone else have any suggestions?
