This has been a staple in our house since 2003. I always use fresh minced ginger and garlic. We like to grill the chops on our Traeger. Wonderful flavors and so easy.
This was so easy to fix and very flavorful. I've prepared it twice already this month. The only change I made to the recipe was lowering the cooking temperature slightly (between medium and medium high) this helped the brown sugar not to burn. My husband really loved it too, so that's an extra plus for me to fix it again. :-D
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?
Quick and easy recipe with nice flavor
loved how easy/quick! yummy with coconut rice. will def make again!
I'm not sure why this isn't 5 stars for all - but this recipe rocked. It was quick, easy and we loved it. The rub doesn't even have to be on for long to get outstanding flavor in this usually blase cut of meat. We served with a compsed Vietnamese inspired salad (think: bhan mi veggies) and some sticky rice. It was healthy, in our calorie range (450 ish with the salad and rice per person) and very satisfying - which is what I'm always looking for in our light meals. I suggest the pan be hot (and use a seasoned cast iron if you have it) - and really pay attention to your thickness on the chops - less than 1/2" thick only needs about 3 min per side. Superb!
The flavors were wonderful. I truly enjoed the chops. Followed recipe exactly. Marinated overnight. Chops formed a wonderful crust and gave off a great aroma. The aroma called my husband to the kitchen. This is definitely a keeper.
With so many 5 stars I thought this must be a winner ... it went wrong for me on so many levels that I wouldn't even attempt to try it again :(
This was so easy, quick and tasy! I didn't have any ginger but thought it still tasted great. Can't wait to try this rub again with ginger next time, and maybe even on chicken! I would absolutely recommend this recipe!
This recipe was so easy to make. i marinated the porks for 15 mins before cooking it. i allowed the porks to carmelized each side and it was so good! had it with rice and green beans.
Quick & easy rub. Grilled chops on the George Foreman. Served with white rice and CL's grilled pineapple salsa (Mar '10). Attractive presentation and very tasty.
Meh. It tasted fine but wasn't worth the effort of making up the rub. We've had better pork dishes from CL that we'll stick with instead.
Amazing. My pork chops were really thick so they took way longer to cook, but the taste of the rub was fantastic! I made coconut rice and peas and it all was great. I would have loved if they had a sauce recipe to go along with the rub recipe since the rice was a bit dry.
This is ouuuutstanding! Absolutely love it and have made it at least 3 times per month since discovering it. The flavors are excellent and come together to quickly! Great weeknight meal served with steamed rice and a veggie. Also add a splash of soy sauce a squeeze a lime into the pan for extra flavor at the end as other reviewers have suggested.
I loved the rub in this recipe. It compliments the pork well and really gives you that asian experience. Absolutely make this again and again.
Absolutely fantastic. Made it with coconut rice as another reviewer suggested. I plan to try the rub with catfish later this week!
LOVED THIS RECIPE. The flavors were outstanding. On the downside, I have discovered that I do not like pork, so I will be trying this spice rub on chicken. I also added about 1 t. of turmeric too, to the rub, for a little different kick!
