Baked Pork Chops with Soy Sauce and Honey

Minimal preparation and no frying makes this one of the easiest ways of serving pork chops, for they are simply soaked in a light marinade and then baked until tender. Good with new potatoes tossed in parsley-butter and a green salad with sprouts.

900g-1kg pork loin chops
2 large cloves garlic
25ml soy sauce
25ml honey
50ml dry white wine
2ml ground ginger
5ml dried sage

Remove rind and most of the fat from the chops and arrange to fit in glass dish suitable for both marinating and baking. Crush garlic directly over chops and rub in with back of knife. Mix remaining ingredients, pour over chops and marinate for about 4 hours at room temperature, or all day in the fridge. Turn chops occasionally while marinating. Remove dish 1 hour before baking and bake, covered, at 160ºC for 1 hour. Remove cover, turn chops and bake uncovered for another 20 minutes or until tender and juices are slightly reduced and syrupy. Ladle a spoonful over each serving. Serves about 6.
