  • 6 pork loin chops 1/2 inch thick
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger peeled and minced
  • 1 teaspoon garlic minced
  • ½ cup fresh orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons grated orange zest
  • 1 tablespoon dark brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon chili garlic paste
  • Kosher salt and ground black pepper


  1. Season the pork chops with the kosher salt and black pepper.
  2. Whisk together the orange juice, garlic, ginger, orange zest, brown sugar and chili garlic paste.
  3. Put the pork chops in a glass baking dish and pour the marinade over them. Turn the chops to cover them evenly. Cover the dish and marinate at least 2 hours, or preferably overnight. Turn the chops regularly to keep them coated.
  4. Light a charcoal barbeque or heat a gas grill for high heat. Lightly oil the grate.
  5. Shake excess marinade from the pork chops and grill them, about 5 to 6 minutes per side, basting with some of the marinade. Pull them off the grill and cover them with aluminum foil and let them rest for about 5 minutes before serving
