4 boneless center-cut pork chops (about 6 oz. each), pounded to 1/2-inch thickness
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
2 teaspoons sesame oil
1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
3 scallions, white and light green parts, chopped
How to Make It
Place pork chops, soy sauce, vinegar and oil in a large ziplock bag. Turn bag several times to coat meat and place in refrigerator for 15 minutes.
Remove pork chops from bag; discard excess marinade. Warm a grill or grill pan to medium-high heat. Grill pork chops until cooked through, about 3 1/2 minutes per side. Transfer to a platter, sprinkle with cilantro and scallions, and serve.
if you don't like cilantro (and as far as i know, there are 2 camps out there: those that LOVE cilantro & those that HATE cilantro), and you're not completely lacking a brain, you can easily make this recipe without it. it's a quick & easy meal, and it's different from the chicken or red meat dinner we all tend to fall back on.
and, indeed if you do not like cilantro, and can't figure out that you just remove this ingredient from the recipe, you should pass by this recipe and look for one that does not contain cilantro. just an idea.
i, however, happen to LOVE cilantro and, therefore, added more.
