So easy and so full of flavours! I will never pay for them at Vietnamese restaurants again! Increase the marinade to make a large batch for grill/bbq out parties. It goes really well with white rice or pair it with my Bacon Fried Brown Rice or Tom Yum Fried Rice for a little extra spice!
The kids loved it as much as I did, and I like that it is so simple to prepare! Note that I pound out my pork chops with a meat meat mallet to tenderize it and thin it. You don’t have to do it if you like a thicker cut of meat, bone in or without. Just increase the cooking time accordingly.
Place all the ingredients (except oil) in a mixing bowl.
Marinate for 1 hour or overnight.
Heat pan on med high and oil pan.
Grill one side for 2 minutes without touching it.
Flip and grill the other side.
Garnish with some Chinese parsley and serve with white rice or bacon fried brown rice.

Bacon Fried Brown Rice – Delishar18 July, 2015 at 4:43 am
[…] it’ll not be soggy or wet if you cooked your plain brown rice right. I served this up with my Grilled Vietnamese Pork Chops, and a sunny side up. But it is good enough on it’s own […]

What about the texture of the pork loin? Will it be hard?

Get fresh pork loins, and tenderize it with a meat mallet as shown. Mine wasn’t tough at all, or else my fussy girls would have rejected it. 🙂
