  • 1 lb Pork Chops boneless
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 tsp gochujang
  • 2 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tsp ginger fresh, minced
  • 4 tsp brown sugar
  • ½ tsp sesame seeds for sprinkling

  2. Add water, and slowly mix in the gochujang until well blended.
  3. Stir in the soy sauce, ginger, and brown sugar.
  4. Bring to a boil. Turn down heat to low, and cook for about 20 minutes. The sauce should change to a deep color. it will not be thick like a traditional barbecue sauce. Remove from heat. Let cool for 15 minutes

  5. Place the pork chops in a zip top bag and pour the sauce. Reserve ¼ cup for basting on the grill. Purge the air and seal the bag. Place in the refrigerator for 2 hours to marinate.

  6. Preheat grill to medium. Spray with non-stick oil spray to avoid chops from sticking.
  7. Place individual pork chops on the grill and baste with sauce. Cook for about 3 minutes on each side. If the chops are kind of thin, so make sure you don't overcook them.  Cook until the internal temperature reaches 145°F or for more done 160°F.

  8. Place pork chops on a plate, cover and let rest for about 5 minutes. Sprinkle with sesame seeds.
