I had recently bought some fresh ginger root for another recipe and forgot I had some pork chops in the freezer, so when I found this recipe I knew it would be perfect! K gave it a 10, must have been pretty good!
Garlic Ginger Glaze-shared from For the Love of Cooking
1 tsp cornstarch
2 tbsp soy sauce
1-2 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 cup honey
1/2 tsp fresh ginger root, grated
1/2 tsp water
sliced green onion, for garnish
4-6 pork chops
Mix cornstarch and soy sauce until smooth, pour into sauce pan. Add in garlic, ginger, water, and honey. Whisk together. Bring to a boil, stirring frequently. Reduce heat and let thicken.
Season pork with salt and pepper. Place in hot pan until browned about 5 mins, flip and cook another 5-8 mins until cooked through. Once pork has been flipped brush with glaze, flip and brush the other side with glaze. We served this with mashed potatoes and broccoli,cauliflower,carrot mix with cheese sauce.
**This would also work great on chicken or beef.
Kitchen Tip: not sure what to do with the entire ginger root? as most recipes do not require much it can be easily stored! Peel ginger root using the edge of a spoon. Wrap root up wax paper or any freezer safe material. Place in zip top bag and place in freezer. Now when you need only a little, take frozen ginger out and grate what you need and pop it back in the bag.
