(I’m doubling the recipe to make enough for two people, although I only cooked for one)

Ingredients:

  • 2 pork chops, about a half inch thick
  • half cup of your favourite broth
  • half cup button mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • pinch of red pepper flakes
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp sesame seeds
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • 1 tsp powdered ginger

Method:

Bring the broth to a boil in a small saucepan. Add the mushrooms, and simmer over low heat for about 10 minutes.

In a small bowl, stir together the vinegar, soy sauce, honey, 1 tsp sesame seeds, and red pepper flakes, then set aside.

Heat the olive oil and remaining 1 tsp of sesame seeds  in a large non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add the pork chops, and brown for about 2 minutes on each side. Add the garlic and ginger; cook and stir until you can smell the garlic. Stir in the soy sauce mixture, and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low, and simmer for 5 minutes, uncovered.

Stir the mushrooms and chicken broth into the pan with the pork chops, and simmer uncovered over low heat until the sauce has reduced by about 1/3, and the pork chops are cooked through.

To serve, place pork chops onto serving plates, and spoon equal amounts of the mushroom sauce over them. My grandpa really loved this one, guys!

-Happy Cooking!
