Mustard-Soy Braised Pork Chops With Celery

This recipe has some esoteric ingredients, which I happened to have in my fridge. I collect condiments. It's sad, really. The salted black beans (soybeans) are optional. If you can't find the chili-garlic paste, mince two or three cloves of garlic together with about a teaspoon or so of crushed red pepper flakes. One might also use cabbage instead of celery.

    This recipe mentions salted black beans, but neither they nor the recommended quantity are given in the ingredients list. (I tried to "submit a correction", but that led to editing the recipe, not a place I could note the deficiency and ask that the author correct it.)
