The Best Gluten-Free Pork Marinade Recipe
- 4-8 pork chops-I prefer using boneless center-cut pork chops
- 1 1/2 teaspoons dry mustard
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 1/2 teaspoons black pepper
- 4 tablespoons olive oil or an olive canola blend
- 2 tablespoons of gluten-free soy sauce-I prefer Gluten-Free VH Low Sodium Soy sauce (you can find other gluten-free soy sauces, and soy sauce options on our list of East and South East Asian Gluten-Free Sauces)
- 2 tablespoons gluten-free Worcestershire sauce
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar- packed
- Mince garlic
- Mix the garlic, Worcestershire sauce, brown sugar, dry mustard, soy sauce, olive oil, and black pepper in a large Ziplock freezer bag
- Close the bag and really shake it up, as you want all the ingredients to be well mixed.
- Unzip, and add the pork and shake up again.
- Leave pork in the mixture for at least 30 minutes. If leaving the chops out at room temperature, leave them for no more than 1 hour. If keeping the bag in the fridge, you can keep the meat in the marinade for up to 4 hours. Remember to bring meat to room temperature before grilling.
- Turn the bag often to make sure steaks are well coated, no matter how you’ve marinated them- room temperature, or in the fridge.
- Once your grill is hot, oil the grill and cook to the desired temperature of 145F degrees for pork chops.
This recipe will produce a restaurant-quality pork chop at home. The meat will be tender and juicy, and wow any crowd. Even if you aren’t grilling outdoors, you can cook your chops on an indoor grill pan, griddle, cast iron pan, or frying pan. No matter the method you choose to cook your pork it will be tender and delicious. And the hit of any dinner!
