Grocery List

Fresh Produce

  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 1 shallots

Meat / Poultry / Seafood

  • 6 bone-in pork loin chops, each about 8 oz and 1" thick

Oil and Spices

  • 3 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 0.25 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 0.5 tsp ground cumin
  • 0.5 tsp kosher salt


  • 2 tbsp miso

Wine / Beer / Spirits

  • 2 fl oz traditional sake (junmai)


  • 8 fl oz mango, orange, or apricot juice



  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped shallot
  • 2 teaspoons finely chopped garlic
  • 2 tablespoons miso (hot bean paste)
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 cup mango juice or apricot juice or orange juice
  • ¼ cup traditional sake (junmai)
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper

  • 6 bone-in pork loin chops, each about 8 ounces and 1 inch thick, trimmed of excess fat


  1. In a medium sauté pan over medium heat, warm the oil and cook the shallot for 2 minutes. Add the garlic and sauté for 1 minute more. Add the miso, cumin, mango juice, rice wine, and salt and pepper to taste. Bring to a boil. Remove from the heat and chill.

  2. Place the pork chops in a large, resealable plastic bag and pour in the chilled marinade. Press the air out of the bag and seal tightly. Place the bag in a large bowl and refrigerate for 4 hours, turning the bag occasionally.

  3. Remove the chops from the bag and reserve the marinade. Pour the marinade into a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Boil one minute; remove from the heat. Allow the chops to stand at room temperature for 15 to 30 minutes before grilling.

  4. Prepare the grill for direct cooking over medium heat (350° to 450°F).

  5. Brush the cooking grates clean. Grill the chops over direct medium heat, with the lid closed as much as possible, until barely pink in the center, 8 to 10 minutes, turning once or twice and occasionally basting with the boiled marinade. Remove from the grill and let rest for 3 to 5 minutes. Serve warm with black beans and rice, if desired.
