  1. Heat oil in a large skillet over low heat while preparing ingredients. Place pork chops in a shallow bowl or baking dish; mix together sherry and 1 tablespoon of soy sauce, and pour over meat. Mix remaining soy sauce with molasses, sesame oil, and vinegar, and set aside.
  2. When ready to cook, increase heat under skillet to high. Cook ginger in hot oil until golden, about 1 minute. Place chops in skillet; pan-fry until pork is a deep brown on both sides, about 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer chops and ginger to a platter, cover, and keep warm.
  3. Pour molasses-soy sauce mixture into the pan; simmer to reduce slightly. Whisk in cornstarch mixed in water; continue to simmer until sauce is thick, stirring frequently. Pour sauce over pork chops, and garnish with green onions, sesame seeds, and browned ginger. Serve immediately.

Wonderful flavor--and eating the cold leftovers was every bit as good as when I made it!

Everyone ate this but it won't become a family favorite. The ginger was more powerful than we're used to and I would prefer a sweeter flavor to the sauce. If I make it again I will add some brown sugar or more molasses.

This was just okay. The pork didn't come out with much flavor. The mollasses was a bit too strong. I won't make again.

This was amazing. The only thing I did differently was to grate the ginger...to get finer pieces. Very easy to prepare and very delicious. Thanks for the post.

This recipe is excellent! My kids even ate all their food (that's a miracle). My husband raved about how good dinner was and requested this be a "keeper" for years to come.

Our whole family felt like we were eating out at a yummy restaurant. I didn't have the sherry so I used a little red wine vinegar. A keeper for sure!

My husband and I really liked this recipe. It's going in the recipe box to make as our family favorites!!

This was pretty good- I seared the pork chops, then finished them in the oven while I made the pan sauce.
