"I love the way the Vietnamese grill pork chops," says Marcia Kiesel, who co-authored The Simple Art of Vietnamese Cooking with chef Binh Duong. "They pound the chops thin for maximum exposure to the heat and then marinate them in a sweet-and-salty sauce that caramelizes as quickly as the pork chops cook on the grill." More Grilled Pork Recipes

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a large bowl, combine the vegetable oil with the honey, fish sauce, garlic, shallots and pepper. Add the pork chops, turn to coat thoroughly with the marinade and refrigerate overnight.

  • Light a grill. Lightly season the pork chops with salt. Brush the grill with oil and cook the pork chops over very high heat until nicely charred and just cooked through, about 3 minutes per side. Scatter the peanuts on top and serve right away with Jasmine Rice with Carrot Relish.

Suggested Pairing

Pork is often thought of as a hearty meat, but it can actually be quite light. And a sweet marinade like this one pairs well with a brisk, unoaked white. Try a dry Riesling from Australia or France's Alsace region.
