In a small bowl, whisk together your sauce ingredients until well combined.

Fry pork until golden crispy brown on each side, about 8-9 minutes in total. You may need to adjust heat as needed.

Remove the pork and place on a paper-towel lined plate to soak up excess grease.

Discard the oil.

In the same pan set over medium heat, pour in your sauce.

Bring this to a simmer and once it bubbles, add your crispy pork back in ensuring every pork chop is covered in sauce.

Transfer to a serving dish. Optional: garnish with sesame seeds and green onions. Enjoy!
