Pork Chops with Scallions, you start with the grill!

Pork Chops with Scallions is so good! A delicious dish of grilled golden brown pork chops finished in a savory sauce of soy, sherry, and vinegar. Add in the braised green onions and you have a wonderful dinner for the family.



First, you start with the grill. Grilling keeps the high heat outside during warm summer days, plus you can get a helping hand if you have a grill master available. So let's talk about that...grilling is the best way to get help cooking dinner or any meal for that matter that can be cooked on a grill. So enlist the help of anyone who grills to lessen your workload.  

Of course, if you are the grill master (or mistress!) I might suggest you hand off some other food-related chores that need doing because the best part of summer grilling and cooking is in the sharing. Sharing in the cooking, the eating, and the cleanup...I think summer is the perfect time to get everyone around the table once again.


This recipe takes just a few simple prep chores before the grilling starts. You pound the chops thin for a tender bite and you will need to skewer the scallions. During the cooking, you grill the chops on a hot flame, for color and flavor only. This dish is finished on the stove, simmered in a sauce, while the rest of the meal is prepared and the table set. But a side burner on the BBQ will also do the trick if desired. By the way, the scallions are just as delicious as the chops!

Ingredients needed for this recipe:
pork chops
scallions
garlic salt
olive or avocado oil
soy sauce
ginger
sherry wine
sugar
cider vinegar
black pepper
You will also need the following:
outdoor grill
large flat pan with a lid
meat hammer
kitchen knife
cutting board
bamboo skewers
measuring spoons
measuring cups
cooking tongs
Now we are ready to begin!

Grill lightly on each side. Set aside to cool. When cool, remove the bamboo sticks and cut the onions into 2-inch pieces. Set aside until needed.



After the scallions have been lightly grilled. It is time to grill the pork chops. 



Add pork chops to the grill and grill until deep golden brown, turn and grill the second side until a deep golden brown. 

Transfer the grilled pork chops to a large skillet with a lid. Add the sauce ingredients and the scallions.

Let the sauce boil allowing the drippings to reduce and thicken. Drizzle over the chops.

Storage options for Pork Chops and Scallions. Store covered in the refrigerator for up to three days. I do not recommend freezing this dish.
