It only takes a few minutes of prep work, requires no tricky techniques, and doesn't call for any hard-to-find ingredients. I served this with some Bok Choy brown rice. *The one hour marinating time is not reflected in the cook time.*"

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Combine brown sugar, garlic, rice vinegar, and fish sauce in a bowl for the marinade. Add a splash of soy sauce and a plop of ketchup and finish off with black pepper and hot sauce.

Step 2

Pour 1/2 of the marinade into a baking dish and lay pork chops over marinade.

Step 3

Pour the remaining marinade on top and toss pork chops until well coated.

Step 4

Wrap with plastic wrap and marinate in the refrigerator, flipping chops every 30 minutes, 1 to 2 hours.

Step 5

Remove chops to a plate, scraping any excess marinade back into the baking dish.

Step 6

Heat oil in a nonstick skillet over medium heat.

Step 7

Place chops in the hot oil and cook until outsides are nicely charred and meat springs back when lightly prodded, about 5 minutes per side.

Step 8

Remove chops to a plate to rest.

Step 9

Pour the marinade into the skillet and raise heat to medium-high.

Step 10

Cook until marinade is reduced and sticky, 3 to 5 minutes.

Step 11

Return pork chops and any accumulated juices to the skillet.

Step 12

Reduce heat to medium-low and cook pork chops, flipping and basting occasionally, until the centers are slightly pink and sauce is to your desired degree of stickiness, 6 to 8 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the pork should read about 145 degrees F (63 degrees C).

Step 13

Plate each pork chop and spoon a portion of the sticky garlic sauce on top.

I served this with a side of stuffing and corn...we both thought that the flavor was very intense...I was a bit concerned with the 2 tablespoons of fish we kept eating about half way through the pork chops we felt that the flavor was becoming overwhelming...I let them marinate for 2 hours...they might have been on the thinner keep that in mind when preparing...made for "Billboard" tag game...

Very good pork chops which we enjoyed, using a bit less garlic and hot sauce. I also used about 6 pork chops and it worked out well. Thanks for sharing!
