I think this recipe is an absolute gem. Really, in all my years of cooking, I don't think I have ever made chops as delectable as these! Crispy-crunchy on the outside, meltingly tender and moist on the inside. The key, I think, is the salty milk marinade/brine, and making sure not to overcook them. Thanks to Gourmet Magazine for this one.
These pork chops are a snap to prepare. Just mix up ingredients, pour over chops and get ready to eat. They are sort of like barbequed pork chops and smell great while cooking. A Corn Casserole goes great with these.
From Chinese Food Site by Lila Voo. The timing does not include marinating overnight. Serve with fried rice and stir fried green beans. I have reduced the hoisin sauce from 1 cup to 1/2 cup. Also have reduced the sherry wine from 2 tablespoons to 1 1/2 tablespoons. Reductions posted after the first six reviews.
I found this recipe in the Cooking Light Summer issue. It was wonderful. My DH, who isn't a big pork eater, even like them. Hope you enjoy. I just had to share with my recipezaar family. Preparation time includes marinating.
These are absolutely amazing! While home with the flu, I saw the chef from the Loveless Cafe in Tennessee on the Martha Stewart show. She made these pork chops on the show and they looked so good that I had to try them. My entire family loved them. As usual, I reduced the sugar content by using Splenda's brown sugar instead of the real stuff. I also doubled the sauce, which you won't regret.

These are delicious pork chops with an asian marinade containing two special ingredients, hoisin sauce, which is a slightly sweet Chinese bean paste and a black bean paste with chilies which is pretty spicy. I like to serve them with braised red cabbage and mashes potatoes in the winter, but in the summer sugar snap peas go very well. This makes lots of marinade which keeps well refrigerated and can be used for baby back ribs or chicken, especially chicken wings.
My Mom,(called Nana by her Grands), made these for us for years. They truly do melt in your mouth . If you are a Blue CHeese fan, these are for you. A fix and forget main dish. I always serve either rice or noodles with it so I don't miss any of the yummy gravy. Also, she used very thick bone in chops, I mostly use the boneless ones, but they really should be thick ones, no matter which type you choose.
