Asian Grilled Pork Chops (freezer meal)


Category : ,

I love the ease of freezer meals.  I've said this a thousand times.  Marinated meats seem to be one of my most favorites.  Freezing meats in marinades, locking in some amazing flavors, pulling it out effortlessly and tossing it on the grill (or the broiler, the oven... really your preparation of choice... mine is the grill :) How much easier can it get?  Effortless gourmet!

I served these with baked potatoes and veggies.  But steamed snap peas and soba noodles would have been a great accompaniment to the asian flavors.

Asian Pork Chops 
(makes 2 entrees, 6 servings each) 

12 pork chops
1 1/3 cups low sodium soy sauce
1/2 cup sugar
2/3 cup rice vinegar
1/4 cup toasted sesame oil
3 tablespoons minced ginger
3 tablespoons minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
3 one-gallon freezer bags, labeled

Divide chops evenly among bags.  Combine soy sauce, sugar, vinegar and oil.  Divide evenly between the two bags.  Into each bag, measure 1 1/2 tablespoons garlic, 1 1/2 tablespoons ginger and 1/4 teaspoon cayenne.  Seal and freeze.

TO COOK: Thaw completely.  Remove chops from marinade and grill as desired, basting with remaining marinade (or use cooking method of choice!)
