  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Heat 1 tablespoon vegetable oil in a skillet over medium heat. Brown chops in hot oil, about 5 minutes per side; remove pork to a plate, reserving oil in skillet.
  2. Cook and stir garlic in reserved drippings until fragrant, about 1 minute. Whisk beef broth, soy sauce, brown sugar, 2 teaspoons vegetable oil, and red pepper flakes in a bowl, dissolving brown sugar. Return pork chops to skillet and pour soy sauce mixture over the chops. Bring sauce to a boil, cover skillet, and reduce heat to low. Simmer chops until tender, 30 to 35 minutes, turning once halfway through cooking.
  3. Transfer chops to a serving platter. Whisk cornstarch and water in a small bowl until smooth; stir into pan juices and simmer until thickened, about 5 minutes. Pour sauce over chops to serve.


  • Cook's Note:
  • I like it with a bit more red pepper than stated in the recipe. It gives it more zing. Also, I often leave the extra oil out of the sauce as the residual in the pan is usually enough. This works great with thinner chops as well, just reduce the simmering time or you'll get tough chops.

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, knowi...

These are great! Garnished with green onion just topped it off perfectly. Don't over cook these - mine were done in 20 minutes.

Great way to prepare a boneless pork chop! My husband and I loved the taste of this recipe. I used low sodium soy sauce, so I did not experience the saltiness some of the reviews mentioned. W...

The only thing that I changed in this recipe was that I seasoned the meat with onion and garlic powder, turmeric, Italian herbs, salt and black pepper. I also did not cook 30 minutes nor did I c...

Make this for dinner, it was deliious and easy.

We loved these pork chops! Super awesome flavor and the pork chops are so moist and tender. I will definitely make this recipe again. We really thought this was excellent! Thanks for sharing thi...

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) ...
