Pork chops are marinated in soy, hoisin, garlic, and ginger, then browned and served with a sweet chili dipping sauce. Plan ahead to marinate 2 hours before cooking.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 25 minutes

Total Time: 40 minutes

Ingredients:

  • Dipping Sauce:
  • 6 Tablespoons soy sauce
  • 6 Tablespoons hoisin sauce
  • 4 teaspoons honey
  • 2 teaspoons Chinese chili sauce (available in Asian markets)
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • .
  • Marinade:
  • 3 Tablespoons soy sauce
  • 3 Tablespoons Oriental sesame oil
  • 3 Tablespoons hoisin sauce
  • 3 Tablespoons dry sherry
  • 1 Tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 Tablespoon minced peeled fresh ginger
  • 1 shallot, finely chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • .
  • 6 thick (1-1/2 inches) center-cut loin pork chops
  • (about 4-1/2 pounds)
  • 2 Tablespoons honey
  • 2 Tablespoons Oriental sesame oil

Preparation:

Prepare the dipping sauce by combining soy sauce, hoisin sauce, honey, chili sauce, and minced garlic in a medium bowl. Divide among 6 little bowls and set aside.

For the marinade, combine the soy sauce, sesame oil, hoisin sauce, sherry, garlic, ginger, shallot, and salt in a large bowl. Add the pork chops and toss to coat completely. Let rest covered at room temperature for 2 hours, turning a few times.

Combine the honey and sesame oil in a small bowl. Place 2 nonstick skillets, large enough to hold 3 pork chops each, over medium heat. Brown the chops lightly, 5 minutes per side basting with the honey mixture. Reduce the heat to medium-low, cover, and cook, turning the chops after 8 minutes, until the chops are cooked through, about 15 minutes.

Serve each chop with a little bowl of dipping sauce.
