I’ll post the recipe tomorrow. This Pork Chop marinade with American Riesling is simply perfect.

Perhaps, my perfect pairing! 👌

Fine chop, whisk together and marinade for two days. Its important you do it for two days to get the desired flavors.

- 4-6 thick cut bone-in pork chops
- 1 cup Wok Mei brand hoisin sauce
- 1 1/2 tablespoons of sugar
- 1 1/2 tablespoons of Tamari soy sauce
- 1 1/2 tablespoons sherry vinegar
- 1 1/2 tablespoons of rice vinegar
- 2 scallions
- 1 teaspoon Tabasco sauce
- 1 1/2 teaspoons of Lee Kim Kee brand chili sauce
- 1 1/2 teaspoons of ginger (I double this)
- 1 1/2 teaspoons of garlic (again, I double this)
- 3/4 cup of cilantro (no stems)
- 1 tablespoon of sesame oil
- 3/4 teaspoon of white pepper

Had this with the 2017 Long Shadows Poetry Leap & with the 2009 S.A. Prüm Graach Domprobst Riesling. You can do either but for me, American Riesling is the perfect pairing. Also, a great value for under $20. Enjoy. Fresh Sugar Snap peas out of our garden with roasted Rosemary potatoes. Mmmmm!

@Sharon B Since you love to cook, you should definitely try this one sometime. Cheers!

Agree that yesterday’s dinner pairing was superb- between the two day marinade and cooking over mesquite grill, the pork chop and Riesling were delicious

American Single Malt Whiskey

I love me some Scotch, but this might be my favorite whisk(e)y out there. The nutty, chocolate richness is right up my alley. 46% ABV is great too, a drop or two of water really opens it up. I would be curious to try this at cask strength. Everyone should have a bottle of this (plus other Westland offerings) in their bar. Delicious. — a year ago
