Sticky Pork Chops recipe

Preparation Time: 1 hours | Cooking Time: 10 minutes

These sticky Chinese pork chops are easy peasy - spicy, sticky, sweet and rich in flavour, they can be BBQed, grilled, cooked on a griddle pan or baked in the oven.


  • 4 pork chops, fat scored
  • 2 tbsp. dark soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp. runny honey
  • 2 tbsp. brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp. hoisin sauce
  • 1 tsp. rice wine
  • 1 tsp. five spice powder
  • Pinch ground cinnamon
  • 1 thumb sized piece root ginger
  • 2 garlic cloves


  1. Mince the garlic cloves and the ginger. Combine the soy sauce, runny honey, brown sugar, hoisin sauce, rice wine, five spice, cinnamon, ginger and garlic cloves in a bowl.

  2. Put the chops into a bowl and cover with the marinade. Cover and leave in the fridge for 1 hour. Let the chops come back up to room temperature.

  3. Heat a griddle pan to high and fry the chops for 4-5 minutes either side, regularly brushing them with the rest of the marinade. Leave to cool for 5 minutes before serving.

For an unauthentic twist on this recipe, try adding a little sweet chilli sauce for added sweetness and heat. Recipe serves 4.
