Recipe : Gluten-Free Grilled Lemongrass Pork Chops

  • 3/4 cup  Asian-style dipping sauce, divided (We love Wegman's Noc Noc sauce; see below)
  • 1 Tbsp finely minced lemongrass
  • 4 (about 2 lbs total)  center-cut bone-in pork chops
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • Pepper to taste
  • 1 1/2 cups organic baby arugula
  • 1/2 cup roughly chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 Tbsp roughly chopped mint leaves
  • 1 red Fresno chili, seeded, thinly sliced (wear gloves when handling)
  • 1 lime, cut in 8 wedges, for garnish


1. Add 1/2 cup sauce to baking dish; stir in lemongrass. Add pork chops; flip to cover both sides in marinade. Cover; chill at least 1 hour.

2. Preheat grill on HIGH 10 min. Coat cleaned grill grate lightly with vegetable oil. Drizzle both sides of chops with oil; season with pepper. Sear on grill about 2 min, until chops have changed color one-quarter of way up and seared side has browned. Turn over; sear 2 min.

3. Reduce heat to MED; grill 2 min. Turn over second time; grill about 10 min, until internal temp reaches 145 degrees (check by inserting thermometer halfway into thickest part of meat). Transfer chops to platter; let rest 10 min.

4. Add arugula, cilantro, mint, chili, and 1 Tbsp sauce to bowl; toss to combine. Remove bone from chops; slice meat in 1/2-inch pieces. Overlap slices on platter; top with arugula mixture. Drizzle with remaining sauce; garnish with lime wedges.
