Easy, yummy weeknight meal! I used the following options: thick-cut pork chops, chives (instead of scallions), honey (instead of mirin) and white wine (instead of rice vinegar). My thick-cut chops cooked for about 22 minutes. Overall, this was a very easy dish and the results were fantastic. I thought the soy sauce overwhelmed the flavor, so next time I may reduce it and use more water instead. I will definitely make this again. We served this with steamed rice and an Asian-inspired cucumber, tomato & almond salad. Thanks!

This was yummy! My pork chops would have probably been ready in about 8 mins, so they got overcooked and were dry. Maybe my heat was too high? But we enjoyed them anyway, with a salad. Thanks for sharing!

This made for a great early lunch. We used breakfast chops and rubbed a little ground ginger into the chops instead of fresh ginger. This is so simple to put together and has a wonderful asian flair.
