Braised Garlic-Ginger Chops
'Quick-braise'—like this flavorful pork chop skillet—dishes get supper on the table fast. Fast braising makes these pork chops tender, and the braising liquid adds flavor power. Serve with sautéed peapods, warm flour tortillas and hot cooked rice.
4 boneless pork chops, about 3/4-inch thick
2 teaspoons olive oil
1/4 cup hoisin sauce
1/4 cup water
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons grated fresh ginger
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
Dash hot pepper sauce
- Heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Brown chops about 2 to 3 minutes on each side; add hoisin sauce, water, soy sauce, ginger, garlic, onion powder and hot pepper sauce to skillet, cover tightly and simmer over medium-low heat for 20 minutes.
