  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 4 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup of mead (or white wine)
  • 2 teaspoons toasted sesame seeds
  • 8 thick pork chops, about 1.2kg
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper



  • In a bowl, add all the ingredients for the marinade (except the pork) then season with salt and pepper generously. Mix well.
  • Place the pork in a large airtight container and pour 3/4 of the marinade over it. Close lid, shake like crazy and reserve in the fridge for 4 hours. Shake each hour. Place the marinade in the fridge too.
  • Preheat the BBQ to high temperature and reduce to medium intensity. Oil the grills.
  • Place chops on fire and cook for 1 minute. Give a 45-degree rotation and continue cooking another minute. Flip the meat and repeat. Cook 1 minute, rotate 45 degrees and cook 1 minute. Baste the meat constantly with the fresh marinade ! Depending on the thickness, the meat should be slightly pink. Continue at indirect cooking if necessary. Place on a plate, cover with foil and let stand 5 minutes before serving. *** For this type of recipe, I suggest to always have a water bottle to extinguish the fire under the grills !!! ***
