South Asian Pork Chops with Peanut Satay Sauce

This pork in a Thai-style marinade has hints of coconut, chile and curry. Canola oil in the accompanying peanut satay sauce gives it a lighter texture while letting classic flavors shine.

  • 3. Remove pork chops from marinade and discard it.
  • 4. Place on pork chops on medium-hot, lightly oiled grill and barbecue for 12 to 14 minutes (6 to 7 minutes per side), depending on desired doneness. If pork chops are thinner than 3/4 inch (2 cm), only cook 5 to 6 minutes per side. Serve with peanut satay sauce on side (recipe below).
