I had some beautiful bone-in pork chops that were just screaming to be grilled tonight!  Of course, I didn’t want just plain ol’ pork chops…  I decided Asian was the ticket!

I made a marinade of:

  • soy sauce
  • garlic
  • sriracha sauce
  • sesame oil
  • black pepper
  • black sesame seeds

and marinated the chops for about an hour.  Onto a hot grill they went.

Meanwhile, I made an Asian-Inspired Peach Salsa, similar to what I made for the Peach Iron Chef Cookoff.

  • 3 Peaches, diced
  • 1/4 Red Onion, diced
  • 1/2 tsp Sambal Oleck (Chili Paste)
  • 1 Tbsp Soy Sauce
  • 1 Tbsp Rice Wine
  • 1/2 tsp Sesame Oil
  • Cilantro, chopped
  • Basil, chopped

Dice peaches and onions and place in bowl.  Add remaining ingredients and lightly mix.  Chill until ready to serve.

I topped the pork chops with the salsa, plated some rice and voila!  Dinner was served!
