Healthy Asian-Style Pork Chops

  • Prep Time: 5 mins
  • Cook Time: 30 mins
  • Total Time: 35 minutes
Yield: 4-5 pork chops 1x


For the Veggies

  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon garlic, minced
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 tablespoon tamari
  • 12 teaspoons sesame seeds
  • 1/2 cup shredded carrots
  • 1 cup pea pods
  • 2 handfuls kale


For the Pork Chops

  1. First, prep your marinade by mixing together, hoisen sauce, minced garlic, tamari, ground ginger, and dried orange peel.
  2. Then, place pork chops in a large glass or tupperware container. Pour marinade on top, making sure to cover the top and bottom. Cover and set in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours or even over night (that’s what I did!).
  3. Preheat oven to 375ºF. Then, place a piece of tin foil on a baking sheet. Arrange pork chops on baking sheet. Cook for about 30 minutes, depending on the thickness of your pork. Note that your pork will release some liquid, this is okay! Just discard it. Once the chops are done cooking, rub them with additional hoisen sauce or more of the marinade you made!

For the Veggies

  1. In a sauce pan, heat sesame oil and garlic to medium/high heat. Then, add in veggies, salt and pepper, and tamari. Sautee for about 5 minutes or until veggies reach desired texture.
