Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes
- 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
- 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
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.
