DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Buy Chops 1" thick.
  • Coarsely chop the walnuts.
  • Sprinkle ground ginger all over the pork chops.
  • Melt the butter in a large skillet, and brown the chops over medium-high heat, 2-3 minutes per side.
  • Transfer the chops to an oven-proof baking dish.
  • Add the ginger ale, fresh ginger, and crystallized ginger to the skillet, and cook over high heat for 2-3 minutes.
  • Pour this over the chops, put it in the oven and bake for 30 minutes.
  • Sprinkle the walnuts and raisins over the chops and bake an additional 15 minutes.
  • Transfer the chops to a serving platter and keep warm.
  • Add the cream to the baking pan and place it over high heat.
  • Cook, scraping up the brown bits, until the sauce is reduced and thickened, about 2 minutes.
  • Pour over the chops and serve immediately.
  • NOTE: Since the crystallized ginger is rather expensive, look for it in an Asian food store, where it should be less than a supermarket.
  • ENJOY!
