Tandoori Marinade is easy to mix up adding so much flavor to pork chops. Works great with sautéed green peppers and onions with tzatziki sauce on homemade naan bread. Great meal for summer time grilling.
Tandoori Marinade Recipe:
* 4-6 pork chops
* 1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
* 1 1/2 teaspoons mustard
* 1 1/2 teaspoon ginger
* 1/2 teaspoon cumin
* 1/4 teaspoon turmeric
* 2 tablespoons lemon juice
* 2 tablespoons canola oil (or other vegetable oil)
* 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
* Salt and Lemon Pepper to taste
1. Place the pork chops in Tupperware Season Serve. In a small bowl, whisk together the yogurt, mustard, ginger, cumin, turmeric, lemon juice, oil, and cayenne pepper.
2. Pour the marinade over the pork chops
3. Move the pork chops around in the marinade until they are all evenly coated.
4. Refrigerate and let them marinate for at least 30 minutes and up to 4 hours (see note).
5. Grill the pork chops for 4-8 minutes per side over medium heat (about 400F) until an internal temperature of 145°F has been reached.
6. Let the pork chops rest, tented with foil, for 5 minutes before serving.
How long to marinate pork chops?
Marinate pork chops for at least 30 minutes up to 4 hours. Anything longer than that does not really add any additional flavor to the pork chops. Additionally, when using anything acidic (like lemons) the meat will start to break down. I suggest if you do this particular marinade do for day of grilling or freeze and defrost overnight.
How to marinate pork chops?
I like to marinate my pork chops in the Tupperware Season Serve. It seals in everything allowing you to flip without the mess.
Meal Prep Tip:
Purchase a pork loin from Costco or Sams Club. Have them cut into desired size. Typically 1.5”-2” is great for grilling or crockpot. When you get home divide pork chops into 2-4 servings depending on family size. Marinate before freezing. Going to the freeze and being able to grab an already marinated pork chop makes weeknight cooking that much easier.
