Ingredients

  • 4 one inch thick pork loin chops
  • 2 Tbsp gochujang
  • 1 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 clove garlic - minced
  • 1 tsp grated ginger
  • 2 Tbsp rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • sesame seeds - for garnish

Instructions

The marinade

  • Combine all the ingredients except the pork chops and sesame seeds and mix thoroughly. Gochujang is pretty thick out of the fridge so keep going. You will get to a smooth marinade.
  • Mix the marinade with the pork.

Skillet method

  • Pre-heat your oven to 375F.
  • Heat a skillet large enough to hold the chops in a single layer over medium heat.
  • Film the skillet with vegetable oil.
  • Briefly fry the chops to brown them.
  • Turn the chops over and place them in the pre-heated oven.
  • Cook, until they reach an internal temperature of 135F.
  • Let stand for 5 minutes.
  • Sprinkle with sesame seeds and spoon any juices from the pan overtop.

Grill method

  • Prepare your grill for medium direct heat.
  • Grill the chops, turning a couple times, until they reach an internal temperature of 135F.
  • Let stand for 5 minutes.
  • Sprinkle with sesame seeds and spoon the accumulated juices overtop.
