Summer is all about grilling. Marinating meat and then searing it over high heat locks in the tenderness and flavor. These pork chops are marinated in brown sugar and fish sauce, the mother sauce of Southeast Asian cuisine. Fish sauce smells a bit funky, it’s true, and just a little goes a long way, but the taste it imparts to food, and the way it blends with other flavors is unmatched. The combination of savory, sweet, lemongrass and tangy lime is incredible. I pan-seared the pork in a cast-iron pan, but you can also grill these pork chops over hot coals. Serve these chops with light salad or rice, and some crisp white wine.
