Share This Recipe
- 1 tsp Sesame Seeds toasted
- 1/2 cup Rice Vinegar
- 3 tablespoons Orange Juice
- 3 tablespoons Mirin (Sweet Seasoning) 3 tablespoons mirin
- 1 tsp Ginger freshly grated
- 1/3 cup Brown Sugar
- 1 pinch Red Pepper Flakes
- 24 oz Pork Loin Chops 4 x boneless chops
- 1 Cilantro optional for garnish
- 1/2 Tbsp Vegetable Oil for searing
- Dry roast the sesame seeds in a small skillet over medium heat for about 3 minutes until toasted. Set aside.
- In a small bowl or measuring cup, add the rice wine vinegar, orange juice, mirin, ginger, brown sugar and mix well until sugar is mostly dissolved.
- Make 1/2 inch deep cuts about 1 inch apart on the fat/silverskin edge of the pork chops. This will help prevent them from cupping when cooking.
- Dry well with paper towels and season with salt and pepper on both sides.
- Heat the vegetable oil in a 12 inch skillet over medium-high heat until beginning to smoke.
- Add the pork chops and cook until well browned, about 4 minutes (or longer if your chops are thick). Turn and cook another minute. Check internal temperature, if your pork chop are thinner they may already have reached the target temperature of 140 degrees f. If so remove to a plate and tent with foil.
- Add the glaze mixture to the skillet, and continue cooking the pork until the internal temperature reaches 140 degrees f (about 3 of 4 minutes) and transfer the pork chops to a plate, tent with foil and allow them to rest for 5 minutes.
- Remove the skillet from the heat.
- After resting, add any accumulated juices and re-heat the skillet over medium heat. Simmer, whisking constantly until the glaze is thick and caramel colored, from 2 to 5 minutes.
- Return the pork chops to the pan, turning to coat with the glaze and transfer to a platter, browned side up and spread with the remaining glaze.
- Serve immediately with some fresh cilantro.
