I just tried this marinade last night and I have to say I was impressed. I altered a few things to make it better for this recipe even though it was good the way it was! I will say it was definitely not lacking in flavor. It tastes along the lines of honey garlic wing sauce only with a hint of soy. If you don’t like any of those flavors, skip this recipe. I get bored with chicken all the time so I wanted to try a different meat on the grill since we had a beautiful day yesterday! If pork isn’t your favorite but your other family members enjoy it, this marinade does mask the taste of the pork so you should still have a good meal. Pork isn’t the leanest of all the meats, so if your fat allowance is low, maybe try it with chicken breast (I haven’t tried this yet, but I will). If you want to give it a shot, the recipe is below.
- 1/2 cup of liquid aminos (healthier soy sauce alternative found in grocery store near soy sauce)
- 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/4 cup red cooking wine
- 1 tsp minced garlic
- 1/2 tsp of seasoned salt
- 1 tsp of minced dry onion
- 4 boneless center cut pork chops
- Mix together in a bowl aminos, brown sugar, wine, garlic, salt, onions
- Salt and pepper both sides of the pork with salt and pepper (easy on the salt) and place in a plastic bag or dish
- Pour marinade over pork or into the plastic bag and seal
- Marinate in fridge for at least an hour. I marinated for the entire day and the pork was full of flavor
I paired this with asparagus on the grill with spray butter and garlic and it was great! It was a lean meal that was full of flavor. Let me know what you think if you give it a try!
