The trick to making mouthwatering meats in minutes is a good marinade. Toss the pork in a fragrant lemongrass sauce in the morning and leave it to soak up the flavours—when you get home, simply throw the chops on the grill!

Ingredients

  • 2 cloves garlic grated or pressed
  • 2 tablespoons grated lemongrass
  • 2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
  • 4 boneless pork loin chops about 450 g total
  • 2 tablespoons butter melted
  • 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
  • 4 corn cobs husked
  • 1 teaspoon lime juice
  • pinch salt

Method

In large bowl, whisk together garlic, lemongrass, brown sugar, fish sauce, sesame oil and vegetable oil. Add pork chops; toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 6 hours, turning once. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate for up to 12 hours.)

In small bowl, combine butter and ginger. Place corn on greased grill over medium-high heat; close lid and grill, turning occasionally, until beginning to soften, about 7 minutes. Brush with butter mixture; continue to grill, brushing occasionally with butter mixture, until grill-marked and tender, 12 to 15 minutes. Drizzle with lime juice; sprinkle with salt.

Meanwhile, place pork on greased grill over medium-high heat; close lid and grill, turning once, until juices run clear when pork is pierced and just a hint of pink remains inside, about 8 minutes. Serve with corn.
