Recipe from: 21 September 2016
Preparation time: 30 min
Cooking time: 10 min


  • 1/4
    brown sugar
  • 1/4
  • 1
    olive oil, plus extra for braai
  • 1
    lemon, juiced
  • 1/2
    smoked paprika
  • 1/2
    red chilli flakes
  • 8
    thinly cut (about 2cm thick) pork loin chops (also works really well with Pork Neck Steaks)


Preheat a grill pan to medium-high.

In a plastic Ziploc bag, big enough to fit the chops, mix together the sugar, honey, oil, lemon juice, paprika and chilli flakes. Add the pork chops and let marinate for at least 20 minutes.

Remove the pork from the marinade. Lightly brush the braai grid with oil. Put the chops on the grill and cook until grill marks form, about 2 minutes. Rotate the chops 90 degrees, and grill for 2 minutes more, to create diamond grill marks. Flip and cook another 2 minutes. Remove from braai to a serving platter and serve.
