• 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup fish sauce
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 medium shallots, minced
  • 2 teaspoons freshly ground pepper
  • 8 thin, center-cut pork loin chops (about 6 ounces each)
  • salt
  • 1/4 cup chopped salted peanuts


  1. In a large bowl, combine the olive oil with the honey, fish sauce, garlic, shallots and pepper. Add the pork chops, turn to coat thoroughly with the marinade and refrigerate overnight.
  2. Light a grill. Lightly season the pork chops with salt. Brush the grill with oil and cook the pork chops over very high heat until nicely charred and just cooked through, about 3 minutes per side. Scatter the peanuts on top and serve right away.
