Sesame Pork Chops

Wow. Bless your bones, Mark Bittman. Found a recipe for Sesame-Glazed Grilled Chicken in Kitchen Express and switched it for pork... yum. And super-quick! I also threw a steamer bag of broccoli in the microwave for a quick side.
  • Boneless pork chops (or boneless skinless chicken breasts), pounded to 1/2-1/4 inch thickness
  •  3 T. hoisin sauce
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 T. soy sauce
  • 1 T. sesame oil
  • cayenne pepper to taste, start with just a pinch
  • sesame seeds, about 1 tsp. per pork chop
  • scallions
Preheat the broiler to high (you could also grill this) and mix together hoisin, garlic, soy sauce, sesame oil, and cayenne into a thin paste. This was about the amount I made for two chops; feel free to increase. Taste and adjust amounts to personal preference. Brush the paste thickly on both sides of chops and place in broiler pan. Broil until cooked through, about six minutes, flipping once. Meanwhile, lightly toast sesame seeds in a dry pan. Sprinkle the pork with seeds and garnish with sliced scallions (optional). If you like, serve over rice.

 on my lap, no less, about to be devoured!
