this recipe was great! hubby and kiddos loved the pork chops and chicken coated with this rub. more importantly, the rub was very easy to make! i marinaded the meat for about 25 minutes. my only question is- how do i prevent freshly minced garlic and ginger (part of the rub) from burning and creating a "burnt" crust on meat?
Vietnamese-Spiced Pork Chops
Smooth this homemade sweet-hot rub into the scored surface of the pork chops for a simple way to prepare this classic cut. Serve with rice.
