Chinese Five Spice Pork Chops
Tonight is our one at-home carnivorous dinner this week. Brad picked up a nice little pack of pork chops yesterday, and since then I've been trying to decide how to cook them. Most often we just sear them in a hot skillet with a little olive oil, seasoned with salt and pepper or cajun seasoning, but tonight I wanted something different. This time I seasoned them with Chinese five spice powder and salt, drizzled them with a little mirin, and then pan fried them in a lightly oiled skillet. For serving, I sliced them and poured the pan juices over. Yumyumyumyumyumyumyum! I made three of them for the two of us, and it was really hard to share that last one. ; )
I'm not posting an actual recipe for these, because they're so ridiculously simple. Just season, drizzle, and fry until done. It doesn't get much easier than that.
