Vietnamiese BBQ Pork Chops




I'm crazy about Asian Food.  I could eat it every single day and never get sick of it. The flavors never disappoint.  One of my favorite things to order in a Vietnamiese restaurant are the BBQ pork chops.  Sweet and salty goodness

This is a great marinade when grilling any type of meat.  

Marinade:
1small shallot, chopped fine
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup fish sauce (Asian section of the grocery store)
2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar 
2 tablespoons avacado oil
1 teaspoon ground black pepper. 


Lime halves for serving
4 1" thick bone in pork chops
Salt

In a small bowl, whisk together all of the marinade ingredients. Pour the marinade into a large ziplock bag along with the meat. Seal the bag and refrigerate overnight. 

Remove the chops from the marinade and place on a prepared grill.  Pour the marinade into a small sauce pan and set aside. 

Season the chops with a little salt. Grill the chops over medium high heat for 4-5 minutes on each side.  Remove from heat and let rest for 5 minutes. 

While the meat is resting, place the marinade on the stove over medium high heat.  Bring to a boil and reduce to 1/4 cup. 

Serve the chops with the reduced marinade and limes. 

These chops are especially good with a side of rice and coleslaw.
