Korean Pork Chops

I used to live in Los Angeles. I had lived in L.A  for about 8 years and one of my fondest memories is the plethora of restaurants. Asian restaurants! It is a walking distance from where I used to live and all I have to do is walk in the corner of the street...from there you will find rows of restaurants.

One of my favorite cuisine is Korean. I love the aroma and simplicity of the recipes. 





Ingredients:

6 bone-in pork chops
6 garlic cloves, chopped
2/3 cup orange juice
1 cup orange marmalade
6 tbsp, low sodium soy sauce or coconut aminos
5 tbsp brown sugar
3 tbsp rice vinegar
3 tbsp sesame oil

Optional:
3 cups snap peas
4 oz angel hair pasta or small broken noodles or rice noodles or buckwheat noodles.
1 tsp sesame seeds


Directions:

In a bowl, combine orange juice, marmalade, garlic, soy sauce, brown sugar, sesame oil, and rice vinegar. Whisk it all together,




Place the pork chops in a large Ziploc bag and pour in the marinade. Put the chops in the fridge and marinate for at least an hour. I marinated mine overnight.



Heat your grill pan and grill the chops. Make sure to reserve the marinade. Grill until thoroughly cooked. In a small saucepan boil the reserved marinade for about 7 minutes. If the sauce is too runny, you can add a tbsp of cornstarch mixed with 2 tbsp of water. This is entirely optional to serve with the chops or you can mix the sauce with the pasta or rice noodles

For the side: Boil a pot of salted water, cook the peas for about a minute. Add the pasta to the same pot and cook for an additional 2 minutes. Drain and toss with the cooked marinade. Sprinkle with sesame seeds.

NOTE: If you have an air fryer, you can use that as well!


Serve the chops with the noodles or rice.



Flavorful and tender!
