Pong Pong Pork Chops

Recipe Adapted From:

  • 4 pork loin chops
  • 1 medium onion, sliced thin
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tsp hot mustard
  • 2 tsp Splenda
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • 2 tbsp Tabasco sauce
  • 4 tbsp peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tsp powdered ginger

In a non-stick skillet saute' onion and garlic with a small amount of water until onion is translucent and set aside.
Trim all fat from chops and make small cuts through any membrane on the outside to prevent chops from curling.
Brown pork chops on both sides and then return onions and garlic to pan.
Mix the rest of the ingredients to make a sauce, thin with more water if needed.
Add to pan chops, onions and garlic and heat through.
Serve with rice.
Chicken breasts can be used instead of pork.

Notes & Tips:
This was delicious! I think I'm going to try this with chicken too. I loved how spicy and sweet the sauce was, not a light sweet but a thick sweet. I served this with a salad instead of rice. Also I substitute regular mustard for the spicy the recipe calls for and I reduced the amount of peanut butter to 2 tbsp instead of the called for 4, I thought 4 might be too much.
