Grilled Chops with Mango Salsa=Perfection

Another dinner on the grill! These chops are definately going on regular rotation at our house. The marinade is great and it keeps the chops nice and moist while they are cooking. The mango salsa is a great addition as well! The mix of the sweet mango, honey and lemon juice mixes with the pepper and cilantro to dazzle the taste buds. I could seriously eat this twice a week (and by the way we did) and I am definately adding this to my menu for my personal chef clients.

For marinade:
2/3 cup soy sauce
1/3 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1/3 cup water
1/4 cup rice vinegar
3 garlic cloves, chopped fine
2-inch piece fresh gingerroot, peeled and chopped fine
6 (1-inch) thick rib pork chops, bones Frenched by butcher, if desired

Marinade: In a saucepan combine marinade ingredients and bring to a boil, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Cool marinade completely. Put chops in a large resealable plastic bag and pour marinade over them. Seal bag, pressing out excess air, and set in a shallow dish. Marinate meat, chilled, turning bag once or twice, overnight. Pour marinade into a saucepan and boil 5 minutes. Grill chops on an oiled rack set about 4 inches over glowing coals 7 to 8 minutes on each side, or until just cooked through, basting with marinade during last 5 minutes of cooking.
