secret recipe club: asian pork chops

remember last month when i said i needed to put a bit more effort into my secret recipe club posts? with a new goal of choosing a recipe that's unpredictable, i had a hard time choosing between the keenan cookbook's asian pork chops and these rainbow cookies. ultimately, the pork chops won. although i have a feeling the rainbow cookies will be making an appearance around christmas time. both jason and i love almond, especially when paired with raspberry jam, so i can only imagine how perfect those cookies would be.

these pork chops were delicious. flavored with fresh ginger, garlic, sesame oil, and soy sauce, it has all the great flavors of stir fry. it didn't hurt that dinner was on the table in less than a half an hour. and it would be delicious with chicken too.

  2. cook the pork in a single layer in a saute pan over medium heat. saute pork on both sides until cooked completely.


  1. Great SRC choice. These sound delicious and simple at the same time, my favorite combination.

  2. This recipe looks so simple but I bet the flavor is out of this world :)

  3. I grew up eating rainbow cookies,(on my blog the recipe is tri-colored cookies) and they're my absolute favorite. That being said, I have made pork chops almost exactly as you did and they are wonderful! Great pick.

    If you haven't already, I'd love for you to check out my SRC entry Baked Buffalo Chicken Wings.

  4. These sound absolutely wonderful, and definitely much easier than the rainbow cookies. :) We make pork chops pretty regularly at our house, and I'm always on the lookout for interesting new ways to prepare them.
    PS - I re-created your Chocolate Pumpkin Spice Bundt for my SRC post this month. Thanks for a wonderful recipe! It was a huge hit at our Thanksgiving table.

  5. Lovely recipe - the flavorings on this pork sound totally delicious!

  6. These look so delicious. Great SRC pick!

  7. Mmm, all my favorite flavors.

  8. what a great choice for the SRC this month :)

  9. sound too easy to look that good. Love the asian twist.
