Ingredients

1 teaspoon sesame seeds
toasted
½ cup rice vinegar
3 tablespoons orange juice
3 tablespoons mirin (sweet seasoning)
3 tablespoons mirin
*
1 teaspoon ginger
freshly grated
*
cup brown sugar
*
1 pinch red pepper flakes
*
24 ounces pork loin chops
4 x boneless chops
cilantro
optional for garnish
*
½ tablespoon vegetable oil
for searing

Directions

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 dissolved.

Make ½ 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 (30 cm) 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 the pork internal temperature; if your pork chops are on the thin side, they may already have reached the internal target temperature of 140℉ (60℃) F. If so remove to a plate and tent with foil.

Juicy pork chop, ready for smothering with glaze

Add the glaze mixture to the skillet, and continue cooking the pork until the internal temperature reaches 140℉ (60℃) 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 reheat 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 smother with the glaze and transfer to a platter, browned side up and spread with the remaining glaze.

Serve immediately garnished with some fresh cilantro and sesame seeds.

The technique in this recipe is outstanding. The pork loin stayed tender and the sweet/sour gingered glazed was absolutely perfectly balanced. Say goodbye to those dry, overcooked and cupped pork chops and hello to crispy pork chops. Make sure to have your sides prepared, once the lean pork hits the pan it moves very quickly. My 1/2 inch thick chops were fully cooked in 5 minutes flat!

I don't see where the cilantro comes in.....I have an idea but it's not mentioned in the process

Thanks for the comment. Serve with some fresh cilantro. Just edited the direction, and it should be more clear now. Happy Cooking :-)
