I had fresh broccoli and boneless pork chops were $1.99 lb. so I decided to make one of our favorite alternatives to Chinese take-out -Sweet-n-Sour Pork Chops. They are so tasty, way healthier, and way cheaper than take-out. We picked up some ready made eggrolls and I served it with steamed rice and broccoli sauteed with ginger, garlic, and a pinch of red pepper flakes. Delicious!
Sweet-n-Sour Pork Chops
Recipe courtesy Robin Miller
1 tablespoon sesame oil
Salt and ground black pepper
4 (4-ounce) boneless pork loin chops
1 cup apricot preserves
2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
1/4 cup chopped scallions
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Season pork chops all over with salt and black pepper and add to hot pan. Cook chops 2 minutes per side, until golden brown. Add apricot preserves, soy sauce and ginger and bring to a simmer. Partially cover and simmer 5 minutes, until pork is cooked through. Remove from heat and stir in scallions.
