Pan Sauteed Pork Chops With Garlic-Hoisin Sauce

"From America's Test Kitchens. It is explained as a sauce prepared in the same pan you've cooked the chops in and you scrape the browned bits into the sauce...sounds good. Please note: a reviewer didn't like these and that's fine; we are all different and like different things. The recipe is from America's Test Kitchen though. Here it is again from another person on an unrelated site I felt I had to defend myself since the poster said I was lying!"

Ready In:




  • Season chops with salt and pepper and heat the oil in a saute pan.
  • Once the oil is hot, saute the chops until done.
  • Remove chops to a platter.
  • Now for the sauce, to the same pan, add oil and garlic and cook on medium heat until fragrant; about 30 seconds.
  • Stir in the broth, hoisin, vinegar, red pepper flakes and any accumulated juices from the pork platter, scrapping any browned bits and simmer until thickened, about 7 minutes.
  • Spoon sauce over chops before serving.

  1. My husband and I really liked this sauce. We served it with the pan sauteed pork chops, too.
  2. Yuck. We all hated this. The sauce tastes very funny with the addition of the red wine vinegar. I cook with hosin on a regular basis. This was not a winner from America's Test Kitchen.
  3. Wonderful recipe....easy for a week night, a little sweet and sour, and a little heat. And we loved the garlic! The cooking times given are perfect! All in all, a recipe worth adding to the "make often" category. Thank you! :)
  4. Delicious! Very easy to make. Excellent with Apple Chutney #177147. We will definately make again and again!
  5. This was very tasty. I used boneless chops, sauteed them until brown and then finished them in the oven while I made the sauce. Since there was only the two of us, I made half the recipe. Worked out just right. :)


<p>I've collected recipes since I was a teen. After all these years I'm trying to get all my index cards and clippings, that still sound interesting to me, posted here so that I can find them and eventually make them! <br /> <br />I've posted some of my Mom's recipes. I regret not having paid more attention to my Grandmothers' cooking. They made some dishes that I miss and there were/are no recipes for them. <br /> <br />I have a wonderful DH and 2 wonderful sons. They are thrilled that I found this site since they directly benefit from it! Before finding 'Zaar, I was less of a cook and more of a recipe collector but now I try many more things and we're having more fun in the kitchen (at least I am)! <br /> <br />Thanks for all your ratings, comments and help in the forums AND for posting so many great recipes. You've enhanced my cooking skills and expanded my horizons! I've learned so much. <br /> <br />For fun, I also like to read fiction, travel, see movies and shows, shop (and I love to browse thrift shops and rummage/garage sales for cookbooks, etc.). <br /> <br />The discovery of a new dish does more for the happiness of mankind than the discovery of a new star Brillat-Savarin</p>
