Thai Lemongrass Grilled Pork Chops

This recipe is great for a hot summer day when you don’t want to fuss in the kitchen. Early in the day blend the marinade ingredients then pour over the meat. Refrigerate until ready to grill. You can use this for chicken as well. Serve with jasmine rice and salad and dinner is done.

Thai Lemongrass Grilled Pork Chops
5-6 thin sliced pork loin chops with bone, rinsed and patted dry

Lemongrass Coconut Milk Marinade
1 (14 oz.) can coconut milk
1/2 cup thinly sliced lemongrass, from the bottom 1/3 of the stalk
1 medium shallot, peeled and chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
2 tablespoons fish sauce
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon white granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt, or more to taste

In a blender combine all marinade ingredients and blend until smooth. Place pork chops in a one-gallon ziplock bag. Pour marinade over pork. Massage the bag to distribute the marinade around the meat. Refrigerate 4-6 hours until you are ready to grill. Grill on medium heat until desired doneness. Serve 4.
