Asian Honey Pork Chops

Ingredients

4 pork chops (thick, not thin cut)

1 tbsp honey

2 tbsp brown sugar

ΒΌ cup soy sauce

4 cloves garlic minced

1 tsp ginger minced

1 tbsp sesame oil

Green onion (optional)

Sesame seed (optional)

Instructions

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

2. Mix together the honey, brown sugar, soy sauce, garlic, and ginger in a large ziplock bag. Add in the pork chops and shake to coat the pork chops evenly. Let marinade for 20-30 minutes.

3. Heat the sesame oil in a large skillet on medium heat. Add in the pork chops, reserving the marinade, and cook for about 3-5 minutes until a golden brown color. Flip the pork chops and cook the other side until a similar color.

4. Add the skillet into the oven and cook for 6-10 minutes, or until no longer raw. *You don't want to overcook them so they become dry!*

5. While the pork chops are cooking, add the reserved marinade into a small pot and bring it to a boil. Reduce heat and let simmer for 2-3 minutes or until thickened, stirring occasionally.

6. Serve the pork chops over rice with plenty of the thickened marinade drizzled on top. Garnish with sesame seeds and green onion.

Enjoy!
