Pork Chops With Miso-Red Wine Sauce

Recipe by FLKeysJen
READY IN: 20mins


  • 4
    (6 ounce) pork chops (bone-in preferred, each about one-inch thick and 6 oz)
  • salt, to taste
  • freshly cracked black pepper, to taste
  • 1
    cup sturdy red wine (like Zinfandel or Cabernet Sauvignon)
  • 2
    tablespoons red miso
  • 14
    cup roughly chopped fresh shiso (or basil or parsley)


  • Heat a heavy skillet over medium-high heat for 2-3 minutes, then add the chops. Sprinkle them with a little bit of salt and a lot of pepper, then brown them on one side for 4-5 minutes. Turn and brown the other side until firm and nearly cooked through, another 3-4 minutes. Transfer to a warm plate and turn the heat to medium.
  • Add the wine and cook, stirring occasionally with a wooden spoon to loosen any bits of meat that have stuck to the pan, until the wine reduces by about half. Turn the heat to low and add the miso; stir briskly to make a smooth mixture (a wire whisk will help here).
  • Taste the sauce and add more salt (unlikely) and pepper if necessary. Spoon it over the pork, garnish if you like, and serve.
