Serves 6

You’ll find a version of this cooked on bamboo skewers at little roadside food stands in Indonesia. Serve White Grape & Mint Salsa on the side with fresh mint sprigs for garnish.

• 1/4 cup molasses (or 2 tablespoons brown sugar)
• 1/3 cup fresh spearmint leaves, well chopped
• 3 tablespoons soy sauce
• 1/4 cup pineapple or apricot juice
• 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, finely grated or minced
• 2 cloves garlic, minced
• 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
• 6 medium-thickness pork chops

1. In a 1-gallon sealable plastic bag, mix together all ingredients except pork chops.

2. Add pork chops, close bag, and marinate in the refrigerator for 6 to 8 hours.

3. Coat the grill with a bit of vegetable oil and heat to medium-hot. Remove pork chops from marinade and grill to sear on both sides. Lower heat and continue cooking slowly, turning often until done, about 20 minutes.
