(3/4 inch-thick) boneless pork chops, trimmed
red pepper flakes
Excellent flavor with a beautiful presentation. I cut back on the soy sauce and made up for it with more broth to avoid over saltiness. Also, I did reduce the cooking time drastically, knowing boneless pork chops cook quickly and dry out quickly too. Alas, they were still tough. No fault of this recipe necessarily, although I can't imagine what cooking these for 30-35 minutes would do to them. I just would consider a pork cut with a little more fat if I was to make this again.
I liked this recipe because it is quick and easy, but to be honest, for me, who has a real sweet tooth, this was just too darn sweet.
I rated this a 5 after I made it a couple of times and tweaked the recipe. First we use bone-in thinner chops, "cheap" chops and they came out tough the 1st time, 2nd time we like extra sauce so I doubled the sauce recipe, but it was even saltier than the 1st time. Finally my husband let me try a 3rd time, so this is what I did. Brine your chops! 4 cups of water w/2 Tbls. of table salt and 2 Tbls (packed) brown sugar. Brine for 2 hrs. I use olive oil. Sear the chops 2 1/2 min each side, remove from pan and set aside. Add 2 cloves of minced garlic, and roughly 1/2 cup of minced onion, and saute'. Whisk 1 cup beef broth, 1/4 cup soy sauce, 4 Tbls. brown sugar, 1/2 tsp of crushed red pepper. Return the chops to the pan and simmer, covered 3-5 min on each side. Remove chops again and cover with foil. Thicken the sauce with corn starch. Serve with egg noodles and greenbeans. Try it, you will love it!! I promise! Even my "cheap" chops came out succulent, juicy and tender!! Definitely a keeper for my recipe box!!
These are great! Garnished with green onion just topped it off perfectly. Don't over cook these - mine were done in 20 minutes.
Salty, yes. Just cut back on the soy sauce. I added extra garlic and it was delicious!
Make this for dinner, it was deliious and easy.
A little too much of the sauce for my family and myself.
Beautiful glossy looking sauce (although I only had to use half the cornstarch/water mix), but as so many others have said it's salty. Next time will increase the amount of broth (use low sod) and cut the soy in half. I had lovely inch thick chops which after searing and then covering (even tho I removed after only 10 minutes) were overdone. Would suggest leaving lid off pan and watching carefully. If you sear, 5-7" should be enough. Will def make again after tweaking to our tastes. Other reviewers suggestion of serving over/with egg noodles was perfect.
