Asian Glazed Boneless Pork Chops with Sesame Green Beans


These pork chops cook lighting fast and the sticky glaze is so flavorful with a little kick!

I love this recipe because of how simple everything is. Just combine all of the ingredients, marinate the chops and sear until cooked. I like to use super thin boneless pork chops for this because they cook much faster and there's more surface area for all the sauce.

The green beans are simple and perfect. Just a touch of sesame oil for flavor. Top everything with some sesame seeds for a little bit of crunch you've got yourself a 10 minute meal!


Asian Glazed Boneless Pork Chops with Sesame Green Beans

4 Servings | Prep Time: 1 hour

Cook time: 10 minutes

Notes: I love this asian twist on pork chops. I like to use really thin chops for this so they cook very quickly and the glaze sears to the outside. Served with these sesame green beans and some rice you have a healthy 15 minute dinner!


Ingredients:

Pork Chops:
  • 1-1.5 lbs thin boneless pork chops (about 8-12 chops)

  • 1 tsp sesame oil

  • 2 tbsp honey

  • 1 tsp fresh ginger, minced

  • 1/4 cup soy sauce

  • 4 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 tsp thai chili garlic paste

  • 1 tsp siracha (more or less depending on spice preference)

  • 1/4 tsp pepper

Green Beans:
  • 4-6 cups green beans

  • 1 tsp Thai chili garlic paste

  • 1 tsp sesame oil

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • Optional: Sesame seeds, for topping

Directions:

  1. Whisk together all of the pork chop ingredients except the pork in a large bowl. Add the pork chops, flip them to completely cover them in the marinade. Marinate for about an hour, flipping them in the marinade halfway.

  2. Steam the green beans over boiling water until fork tender. Transfer immediately to a bowl of ice water to blanch them (this helps them maintain their bright green color).

  3. Heat a sauté pan over medium heat. Add the pork chops to the pan to brown for 3-5 minutes along with all of the marinade. Flip and cook another 3-5 minutes until fully cooked through. Cook times may vary depending on thickness. Each pork chop I used was about 2oz and 1/2” thick. Remove from pan and set aside.

  4. Add green beans and associated ingredients to the pan and sauté 2-3 minutes until the garlic is fragrant, the green beans are hot and glazed with the toppings.

  5. Serve the green beans topped with sesame seeds alongside the pork chops. I also served this with some jasmine rice and warm pita bread.
