Ginger-Sesame Thin Cut Pork Chops

Servings: 4


  • 2 tbsp fresh lime juice I used 1 lime
  • 2 tbsp sesame oil
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 1/2 tbsp fresh ginger peeled & grated
  • 1 tbsp fresh orange juice
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1/2 tbsp dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp orange zest
  • 3 thin cut pork chops


  • Combine the lime juice, sesame oil, soy sauce, ginger, orange juice, rice vinegar, vegetable oil, brown sugar, and orange zest together in a large zip lock bag. Mix until well combined. Add the pork chops to the bag and seal and shake to coat the chops evenly. Place into the refrigerator for 40 minutes then remove from refrigerator for the remaining 20 minutes.
  • Heat a large pan that has been coated in cooking spray over medium high heat. While the pan is heating up, place a couple of paper towels on a large plate. Remove the pork from the marinade and place on the paper towel covered plate. Pat the meat dry with another paper towel then season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste. Place into the hot grill pan and cook for 4-5 minutes, or until golden brown. Flip the meat and cook for another minute to two minutes, or until cooked through. Remove from the grill pan and let the meat rest for 5 minutes before serving. Enjoy.
