Vietnamese-style Grilled Pork Chops?… I LOVE the flavour you get from such a such a simple marinade.


0/17 Ingredients
  • Nuoc Cham Dressing


0/5 Instructions
  • Cover pork chops with baking paper or cling film and use a rolling pin or saucepan to pound to an even 1.5cm thickness.
  • For the pork marinade, whisk together the fish sauce, garlic, sugar, turmeric and pepper. Pour mixture over the pork and marinate for 10 minutes.
  • To make the nuoc cham dressing, combine the fish sauce, sugar, vinegar, lime juice and 1/4 cup of water in a jar and shake until the sugar dissolves. This can be stored in the fridge to use for up to 2 weeks. When ready to serve, pour out a small bowlful of the dressing and add the chilli and garlic.
  • Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large non-stick frying pan over high heat and cook pork for 3-4 minutes each side until just cooked through. Remove from heat to rest for 2 minutes.
  • Serve pork with rice, egg, tomatoes and cucumber. Top the whole lot with generous spoonfuls of dressing.
