I’m always looking for new ways to cook chicken and pork, my two main proteins. Here’s an easy one that’s very tasty with a hint of heat and spice.
Prepare a baking dish which will hold 2-4 pork chops without crowding by spraying with non-stick cooking spray. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a small bowl whisk:
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger (or use 1 teaspoon fresh grated ginger)
2 tablespoons sugar-free ketchup
3 tablespoons soy substitute (or soy sauce if you can use it)
2 tablespoons date sugar
Salt and pepper to taste (approximately 1/4 teaspoon of salt and a dash of ground pepper)
If preparing 4 chops, double the above. In a medium to large sauce pan heat:
1 tablespoon olive oil
When the oil is shimmering add:
2 thick cut pork chops
Sear on all sides before adding to the prepared baking dish. Spread with the prepared sauce and bake approximately 40-50 minutes depending on the size of the pork chops.
