Asian ingredients give these barbecued chops heaps of flavour. They can also be cooked under the griller.

Loved this recipe! Even got my teenage son eating these chops and he doesn't even eat pork - to his surprise (and mine). Deliciously simple and clean ingredients.. I served with caramelised onions and an asian inspired green salad. Definitely will be repeat this recipe. Thank you. - 04 Oct 2009


Altered ingredient amounts. These were good. I didn't have any chilli paste or orange zest and this may have intensified the flavours if I had used them. The nicest thing about the marinade was I had most of the ingredients on hand. I think I will pick up some chilli paste next time I am at the store and give this another shot. - 29 Sep 2008


I gave this a 5 stars because it was VERY EASY AND VERY flavourFUL! I followed the recipe EXACTLY and for us it was a bit too much ginger, but its called Asian GINGER pork chops right? These pork chops grilled to a very NICE colour and I would try them again. Next time just for our taste I would cut the ginger to half the amount. But it is very good as is, ESPECIALLY to those ginger lovers out there! Thanks for a great and easy recipe. - 29 Sep 2008
