Grilled Coconut Curry Pork Chops

Two challenges in one day.....whew! 

This is my first time participating in the Crazy Ingredient Challenge hosted by Jutta of Hungry Little Girl.  I previously participated in a Surprise Recipe Swap Challenge, but it has been re-born into an ingredient challenge. The theme for this month was tomato and coconut. My mind immediately went to curry. I recently made a crockpot chicken curry and wanted to try something on the grill.  The marinade came together very easily and smelled amazing. I served these with wild rice and fresh pea pods. Ron and I both loved this meal and thought the flavors were perfect together.

4 Pork Chops
1 cup tomato sauce
1 (14.5 oz) can coconut milk
2 inch chunk fresh ginger, minced
3 T olive oil
2 Tbl agave nectar (or honey)
Juice of 2 limes
2 1/2 Tbl curry powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper


Mix all ingredients into a medium bowl. Place pork chops into a large ziplock bag and pour marinade over the chops. Shake to coat and allow it to marinade in the fridge for at least 8 hours.  

Remove meat from container or bag and discard the marinade. Grill meat to desired doneness. My pork chops were medium thickness and were grilled 3-4 minutes per side (this can be adjusted depending on the thickness of the chop).
