Baked or grilled peach yogurt curry marinated pork chops are just delicious. This is a quick and easy summertime meal. Can use boneless or bone-in pork chops. Plus, save some of the Peach Yogurt Curry Marinade to baste pork chops when grilling.
Peach Yogurt Curry Marinated Pork Chops
Yogurt is a versatile cooking ingredient. Just walk by the dairy case and there are all kinds and brands. It is proof that we eat a lot of it. I like making simple and quick meals for my family. This marinated pork chops recipe actually stems from my almost expired peach yogurt in the fridge. I had one left and I needed to use it. So, I made a marinated with it.
Peach complements pork very nicely and I figured I would add in some of my favorite spice. I purchase my curry powder from our local Asian market. I was once told by an Indian friend that there is a big difference in American made curry powder. I personally have never purchased a brand-specific kind and get most of my spices from our Asian Market as they sell them in bulk.
After hearing there may be a difference, I searched the web for more information. Here is what I dug up. Sure enough, there are and they all factor into the taste of your food.
My Family enjoyed this meal and it even received two thumbs up from my six-year-old.

A quick marinade will come together in seconds when you start with a flavorful base like yogurt. If you aren’t familiar with cooking using yogurt, it is actually a commonly used marinade ingredient as well as a thickener in many Indian dishes. This just seemed to be a great idea to throw together, and the result was amazing.
To add a bit more flavor to your marinated pork chops, you can seal this in a bag for up to 24 hours in the refrigerator before grilling. Allowing those flavors to seep into the meat will result in a much moister pork chop, as well as a richer flavor. I like using my vacuum seal machine for marinades as it helps to really pack the flavor into meats.
While I grabbed these pork chops on sale with the bone in, you can easily use a boneless pork chop for this recipe. Marinated pork chops are ideal for going alongside a nice bed of steamed rice and vegetables, or as a special upscale treat on the grill to replace classic burgers and hot dogs.
Even with a bit of flavor kick from the curry powder, this is super kid-friendly. If you prefer more heat, you can add in some red pepper flakes, but this recipe really doesn’t need anything else to be amazing.
