When it comes to marinades to use on pork, there is no dearth of choice. The most popular types are those that include tomato sauce, vinegar or mustard and Worcestershire sauce from Allegro Fine Foods. The first three can be used together or can be used separately depending on the Allegro recipes that you are using. Let us take a look at some marinades that can be used to spruce up any pork chops that you would normally grill.
First off, there is the classic marinade for pork chops. This is one that you would typically make when you have people over to eat. It is made by combining some amount of soy sauce, olive oil, salt and pepper, and red wine in a bottle. This marinade should be made at medium heat so that the ingredients will be able to stick to the meat.
Another favorite marinade for pork is one you can buy teriyaki marinade. This brown sugar-based marinade is best added to pork chop cooked on direct heat and then allowed to marinate overnight in the refrigerator. The next day, simply throw the marinade into the grill, cooking until the sugar begins to brown, which will brown the meat nicely.
Many barbecue recipes call for mustard or ketchup. These two flavors are very common in various barbecue recipes and can also be used as marinades for pork chops. Simply follow your recipe and try to incorporate one of these sauces, as well as a bit of garlic, to bring out the natural flavor of the marinade. You may also want to consider adding a small amount of tomato sauce to enhance the natural sweetness of the marinade.
A favorite barbecue seasoning that many people like to use on their grilled pork chops recipe chops is vinegar. In fact, you can use any type of vinegar you prefer. Just remember that white vinegar is often recommended for use on pork. Orange is another popular variety of vinegar. If you are looking for a more intense vinegar flavor, add apple cider vinegar. Other great choices include beer-based vinegars or commercial barbecue sauces.
When creating a sauce from scratch, it’s best to keep in mind what will complement the ingredients and achieve the desired result. For example, an olive oil-based sauce might not taste as good on a pork chop with a strong vinegar-based sauce, as an olive oil will overpower the acidic components of the vinegar. Keep an eye on internal temperature, too. Pork chops that are at internal temperature, and slightly pink in color, are the best candidate for using a barbecue sauce. Do not, however, use a sauce that has already been set when the internal temp is below medium rare. That said, most people like to pull pork ribs out of the fridge a bit early so they can dress them according to their own preference.
