Easy marinated pork chops — a family favorite and the perfect combination of sweet and savory. Made with only six simple ingredients!



4 pork chops (bone-in or boneless)
1 tablespoon fresh ginger, minced
1 tablespoon fresh garlic, minced
1/4 cup coconut aminos or soy sauce
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup maple syrup (or brown sugar)


  1. Combine everything but the pork chops in a large freezer-size zip-top bag. Squish everything around to create the marinade.
  2. Place pork chops in the bag and toss to coat. Lay flat in the fridge for four hours (or more — overnight is great!), flipping the pork chops halfway through marinating time. (If you aren’t home and able to flip the pork chops, don’t worry about missing this step!)
  3. Remove pork chops from marinade and discard the marinade.
  4. Heat a large skillet to medium-high heat. Place pork chops in skillet and cook for approximately 5-6 minutes on each side, or until center is no longer pink and the pork chops are lightly browned.
  5. Remove from heat and let rest for a couple of minutes before plating and serving. Season with salt and pepper as desired.
  6. Enjoy!


  • Jarred minced garlic and/or ginger paste will work well in this recipe  if you don’t have fresh garlic or ginger on hand or are simply looking for a way to make this recipe even easier.
  • Chicken breasts or a full pork tenderloin will also work well in this marinade if that’s more your style!
