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.
