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, for that reason alone I made a marinated with it.
Peach compliments 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. Personally I have never purchased a brand-specific kind and get most of my spices from our Asian Market as they sell them in bulk and I have found them to be inexpensive.
There is nothing wrong with being frugal. Every little bit of savings help.
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 as a result, I even received a two-thumbs-up from my then 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.
