This recipe is based on one that was from my Grandmother's handwritten recipe note-cards. Over the years I've played with it and ended up with this Asian-inspired version.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Chop onion.
  2. Mix together the 1/4 tsp of salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder and the Ginger.
  3. Season loin chops with the spice mixture.
  4. Heat a large skillet over medium-low heat, and add the 2 TBS of oil.
  5. Brown the onion and the loin chops for approximately 5 minutes per side.
  6. Mix together all the remaining ingredients in a bowl.
  7. When loin chops are browned on both sides, add the sauce mixture.
  8. Simmer on medium-low heat for approximately 15-20 minutes, until pork is done to an internal temperature of 170 degrees and sauce is reduced and thickened.
  9. Taste sauce (say Yum) and add more pepper or soy sauce to taste, if desired.

Great easy recipe with lots of flavor. I made half a recipe using peach nectar but the rest as written. Served with fried rice. Great meal.

This was so good and so easy, I am surprised it is not illegal. I did not have any apricot nectar or apricot preserves so I followed reviewer, SWalker’s suggestion of simmering 1 cup apricots, ¼ cup sugar and 2 cups water for an hour and then using my immersion blender. It ended up a bit sweet for me, so I added the juice of one small Meyer lemon. I also did not use any salt as oyster sauce has so much sodium - did not miss the extra salt at all - I don’t know how good it would be just as written, but it sure would have to go some to beat what I had. This is defiantly a keeper, thank you , Bert's Kitchen Witch for sharing this great recipe.
