Asian Pork Chops

Prep: 20 min | Cook: 10 min | Serves: 4


  • 1 tbsp + 1 tsp soy sauce (reduced-sodium)
  • 3 tbsp rice wine vinegar
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 1 tbsp + 2 tsp olive oil (divided use)
  • 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 clove garlic (minced)
  • 2 cups broccoli florets
  • 1 lb. pork loin boneless chops (divided into 4 portions)
  • 2 tbsp cilantro (chopped)


In a medium bowl, combine the soy sauce, vinegar, water, 1 tablespoon olive oil, crushed red pepper, and garlic. Add the pork chops and marinate them in refrigerator for 20 minutes or longer.

Steam the broccoli for 5 minutes; until tender.

Add the remaining 2 tsp olive oil to a large sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add the pork chops and sear for about 5 minutes per side or until done. (Reserve marinade for later).

Place the marinade in a small saucepan. Bring it to a boil; reduce the heat and simmer about 2 minutes. Place the pork chops on serving platter and pour the cooked marinade over them.

Top the pork chops with chopped cilantro and serve with the steamed broccoli.
