Lemon Grass Pork Chops

We love to eat grilled pork whenever we go to Vietnamese restaurants.  I attempted to mimic the taste and cook these for dinner.  I found that lemon-grass was the key ingredient that made the difference.


1 Lemon-grass
4 Pork Chops
2 Cloves garlic
1 Yellow onion
3 Tbsp Mae Ploy Thai chicken sauce

Marinating sauce:

1 tsp sesame oil
1 tsp soy sauce
1/2 tsp peppers
1 Tbsp cornstarch

  1. Pound and thin the pork chops with a meat mallet.
  2. Add marinating sauce and let it sit for at least 10 minutes.
  3. Heat and add cooking oil into grill pan.
  4. Add in garlic and onions, saute until fragrant.
  5. Add pork chops and let cook for 5 minutes on each side.
  6. Pour the chicken sauce over the pork chops and cook for another 5 minutes. Turn and cover both sides with sauce.
  7. Serve over rice.
