Ingredients

GLAZE:

  • 1 tsp sesame seeds
  • 1/2 cup rice vinegar
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 3 tbsp orange juice
  • 3 tbsp mirin
  • 1 tsp grated ginger
  • 2 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • pinch cayenne
  • 2 tsp rice vinegar
  • 1 tsp sesame oil

CHOPS:

  • 4 pork chops
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil

Instructions

  • Combine all of the glaze ingredients except the sesame oil and 2 tsp rice vinegar. Pat pork chops dry and season with salt and pepper.
  • Heat oil in a 12 inch skillet over medium high heat until smoking. Add the pork to the skillet and cook until well browned, 4 to 6 minutes. Turn the chops and cook 1 minute longer; trnasfer the chops to a platter and pour off any oil in the skillet. Return the chops to the skillet, browned side up, and add the glaze. Cook over medium heat for 5-8 minutes. Remove the skillet from heat. Transfer chops to a plate, tent with foil, and let rest until the temp reaches 150 degrees (5 minutes).
  • When the chops have rested, add any juices to the skillet and set over medium heat. Simmer, whisking constantly, until the glaze is thick and caramel colored, 2-6 minutes. Return chops to skillet; turn to coat both sides with glaze. Transfer chops back to plate, browned side up, and spread glaze over chops. Serve immediately.
