I picked up a four-pack after work Monday, and based on a loose recipe and my own favorite flavors, I threw together a marinade for the chops, and once I started cooking them, I had dinner on the table in twenty minutes.
I (clearly) didn't cook anything fancy with these chops, but roasted sweet potatoes are always one of my favorite sides. I went ahead and thickened the marinade to serve these, but that step would be optional.
Sesame Pork Chops
1/2 C. low-sodium chicken broth
1/4 C. honey
1/4 C. soy sauce
2 T. ketchup
1 T. sesame oil
1 T. rice wine vinegar
1 T. olive oil
1/2 tsp. dry mustard
1/4 tsp. garlic salt
1/4 tsp. black pepper
Mix together; pierce chops with a fork, and marinade for at least an hour.
To cook, melt 2 T. butter in a skillet over medium-heat. Season all sides of chops with seasoned salt, garlic salt, and black pepper. Sear each side for 3 minutes in the skillet; add marinade back to pan, and reduce heat to medium-low. Cover skillet, and cook an additional 15-20 minutes, turning every 5 minutes.
(To thicken marinade, remove chops, and bring marinade to a low boil. Whisk in a mixture of 2 T. corn starch and 1/4 C. water. Whisk until thickened, and remove from heat.)
