China Chops

4 boneless pork chops
1/4 cup rice or white wine vinegar
3 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp honey
1/2 tsp hot pepper sauce
1 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp olive oil
1 tsp sesame oil
4 cloves garlic minced

In small bowl, mix together vinegar, soy sauce, honey, hot pepper and ginger.

Heat both oils in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add pork chops and cook until nicely browned on each side. Add garlic and stir constantly until garlic is very light brown in color. (If you let it get too brown, it will be bitter.) Reduce heat to low.

Add the vinegar mixture, cover and cook until chops are finished. (10 - 15 minutes depending on preferred doneness.) Sauce will be slightly thickened, but you can remove chops and allow sauce to thicken for a few more minutes. Pour sauce over chops.

Serving Suggestions: Serve on a bed of raw spinach. The heat from the pork will wilt it perfectly. Add baked squash, start your squash before you start cooking anything. Or serve with brown rice. Can also make this using chicken thighs instead of pork chops.
