  • 2 lbs boneless loin pork chops thinly sliced
  • 2 Tbsp honey or brown sugar
  • 2 cloves garlic pressed
  • 1/4 cup minced sweet onion or yellow onion
  • 1 stalk green onion thinly sliced
  • 1/2 tsp white pepper
  • 1 Tbsp dark soy sauce
  • 3 Tbsp fish sauce
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil or vegetable oil
  • 1 Tbsp lime juice or lemon juice


  • Mix all ingredients for the marinade together in a small container. Using a hand blender, pulse a few times to partially liquefy the marinade. If you don't have a hand blender, simply mince the onion, garlic and green onion as finely as you can.
  • Place the pork chops and the marinade in a bowl, or a Ziploc bag and mix well, ensuring even coverage. Refrigerate overnight and up to 24 hours.
  • About half an hour prior to grilling, take the pork chops of the fridge and give them a good mix. Let rest at room temperature.
  • Preheat your grill to medium-high temperature. Depending on the thickness of the pork chops, grill for about 5-10 minutes, flipping frequently to avoid burning. Grilled pork chops are fully cooked once their internal temperature reaches 145F. Use an instant-read thermometer to get optimal results.
  • Once the pork chops are cooked through, removed them from the grill, cover with a foil tent and let rest for 5-10 minutes before serving. This will allow the meat to reabsorb some of the water lost during grilling.
