Grilled Lemongrass French Pork Chop

I have fallen in love with the French Pork Chop!

I posted about this before but since I have this amazing collaboration with Morgan Berrington ( I had to post again. If you start to follow her you will see she uses our products a lot, which is a honor because she makes some killer dishes with our meats.

She recently sent me this grilled lemongrass pork chop recipe. The flavors are way different for me, but I try and keep an open mind these days and it did not disappoint!

I have told you guys before that I usually limit my sauces to ketchup on French Fries and BBQ sauce on any smoked meat but that’s it. When I saw the spicy dipping sauce I was skeptical but it was amazing, just the kick you need to spice up a weekday meal. I know we have all been in the kitchen a lot during 2020 so why not try your hand at something different.


  • Marinade pork chops. Combine lemongrass, garlic clove, fish sauce, sambal oelek,
    brown sugar, lime juice and chopped cilantro in a shallow dish (or plastic/reusable bag).
    Add pork chops and rub marinade all over pork. Marinade for at least 1.5 hours and up
    to overnight in the refrigerator.
  • Grill the pork chops. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Take pork chops out the refrigerator
    and let them come up to room temperature for 30 minutes.

    cast iron over medium high heat. Season lightly with salt and freshly ground black
  • Sear pork chops on the pan for 2 minutes on one side. Flip on the other side and sear
    for 2 minutes. Place the grill pan or cast iron pan in the oven and cook for another 5
    minutes. Take the temperature and once it reaches 140°F, remove the pan and place
    pork chops on a plate and cover with aluminum foil to rest for 5 minutes.
  • While the pork is cooking, make the dipping sauce. Combine sambal oelek, brown
    sugar and lime juice in a small bowl.
  • Make cucumber salad. Combine thinly sliced cucumber and everything bagel
    seasoning, furikake or sesame seeds. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
    Refrigerate until ready to serve.
  • Time to serve. Place rice in a bowl or on your plate, top with pork chop and serve with
