2 center-cut pork chops
1 tbsp honey
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 tsp ginger, minced
healthy 1/2 tsp sambal oelek
1/4 tsp five spice
1 tsp canola oil, pus 1 tbsp for cooking
Rinse pork chops and pat dry with paper towels. Mix other ingredients in small bowl and place marinade and pork chops in a resealable plastic bag to marinate. Marinate in the refrigerator overnight. Remove pork chops from the refrigerator 30 minutes before cooking so they can come up to room temperature.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Using paper towels, pat pork dry of excess marinade. Do not discard the marinade. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a large ovenproof skillet (we used our cast iron) until shimmering. Add the pork chops and reduce the heat to medium high. Sear the pork chops until golden brown, around 2 minutes per side. Baste with marinade and place the pan in the oven. Roast until cooked through, about 5 minutes, turning once halfway through and basting lightly with reserved marinade.
Remove from oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes. Serve.
