Quick, easy, and delicious marinated pork chops in teriyaki sauce. A perfect one-pot meal for a delicious dinner idea for the whole family.
According to oureverydaylife.com, “It is said that the history of teriyaki sauce can be traced back to early Japanese immigrants who settled in Hawaii, and who created a distinctive marinade using local products like pineapple juice, which they blended with soy sauce. Eventually, the sauce that most people call teriyaki was born. Its ingredients are brown sugar, cornstarch, garlic, mirin (rice wine) sake, soy sauce, and sugar.”
For the acid, you may use any type of citrus available in your area. It can be lemon, lime, mirin, or sake. However, the choice is up to you. You may add some diced bell peppers or any other vegetable you enjoy to the pork teriyaki dish. You can roast this in the oven, just make sure to sear it first or pan-fry it to get that delicious semi-brown color; which is flavor!
