Chinese Barbecued Pork Chops Recipe

  • 1/3 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup hoisin sauce
  • 3 tablespoons rice wine vinegar or white wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons dry sherry or fat-free reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
  • 4 boneless center-cut pork chops
  1. In a small saucepan, combine the ketchup, hoisin sauce, vinegar, sherry or broth, garlic, and ginger. Bring to a gentle boil over medium-high heat. Cook, stirring often, for 3 to 5 minutes, or until reduced to a syrupy consistency. Set aside.
  2. Coat a grill rack or broiler pan with nonstick spray. Preheat the grill or broiler. Grill or broil the chops for 8 minutes, turning once. Cook, brushing with the reserved sauce and turning occasionally, for 3 to 4 minutes longer, or until a thermometer inserted in the center of a chop registers 160 degrees F (70 degrees C) and the juices run clear.
