Grilled Coconut Curry Pork Chops

CIC header
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).

  2. I love pork chops, but have never ever made them this way! Guess what?! This will change next week, I just put this on my menu :)

  3. My husband loves pork chops and we love curry as well, just made a crock pot chicken curry this week too! This looks like something I need to try!!!

  4. Tomato + Coconut = Curry in my mind too. I will remember this the next time I get pork chops.

  5. I just put some pork chops in the freezer, and now I know what to make with them next week! These look so good.

  6. I don't eat pork, but I bet this sauce would be great on fish. I'll try it out!

  7. Looks wonderful! Definitely going to try this.

  8. What a great idea! I've done marinades with yogurt but the coconut milk would add a hint of sweetness. Brilliant idea! Krista @ A Handful of Everything

  9. Love pork chops and this sounds like a wonderful way to serve them..
