Marinade & Pork:

Dressing & Salad:


Make Marinade:

  1. Mix together marinade ingredients and pour over pork chops in a single layer in a baking dish (or in a large zip top baggie). Refrigerate for 1-6 hours.

Make Dressing & Grill Ingredients:

  1. Mix dressing ingredients from soy sauce through Sriracha until all is incorporated. Refrigerate until needed (if dressing thickens as is waits, add water to thin to pouring consistency).
  2. Heat a grill to medium-high.
  3. Combine carrots, peas, and onions in a large bowl. Toss with 1 Tb. sesame oil, salt and pepper.
  4. Remove pork from marinade and grill until done, 145-155 degrees (use a thermometer for accuracy, that’s the way we stopped cooking our pork too long!).
  5. At the same time, grill the prepared carrots, onions, and peas using a grill basket, tossing every few minutes (the pork will probably be done cooking before the vegetables). Cook the vegetables until still crisp with edges starting to char. Cook time is usually 12-15 minutes.

Assemble Salad:

  1. Divide the cabbage between 4-6 plates.
  2. Slice pork chops thinly and divide between plates.
  3. Top each plate with a portion of the grilled vegetables and then drizzle the dressing over all. Garnish with chopped peanuts and cilantro or parsley.


*The vegetables are easily changed with whatever is in season – like green beans, red peppers and onions, etc.
