Caramelized Asian Pork Chops with Sizzled Ginger Rice

Inspiration:
Food & Wine

Pork Chop Ingredients:
  • 4 garlic cloves, halved
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 8 very thin pork rib chops (about 4 ounces each)
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper


Pork Chop Instructions:
  1. Put the garlic, soy sauce, sugar and oil in a mini food processor and process until the garlic is pureed. Put the pork chops on a rimmed baking sheet and pour the marinade over them; turn to coat the chops. Let stand at room temperature for 15 to 30 minutes.
  2. Light a grill. Season the chops with salt and pepper and grill over high heat until charred and just cooked through, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer to plates.

Rice Ingredients:
  • 1 1/2 cups sushi rice
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup julienned fresh ginger

Rice Instructions:
  1. Put the rice in a small saucepan, rinse well and drain. Add the 2 cups of water to the rice and bring to a boil. Cover and cook over low heat for about 13 minutes, until the water is absorbed and the rice is tender. Remove from the heat and let stand, covered, for 5 minutes. Fluff the rice and cover again.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small skillet, heat the vegetable oil. Add the ginger and cook over low heat until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Stir the ginger into the rice and serve.

That looks great! I love pork, but it can be overcooked easily (don't ask me how I know this) yours looks juicy and delicious.
