Ingredients
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon cashew butter or creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon rice wine vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried onion
  • 1 pinch Chinese five spice
  • 1 dash Sriracha
  • 2 whole center cut pork chops either boneless or bone in
  • 1/2 cup Panko bread crumbs
Instructions
  1. In a bowl stir the sesame oil, soy sauce, cashew butter, rice wine vinegar, dried onion, Chinese five spice, and Sriracha together thoroughly to make a thick marinade. Coat the pork chops in the marinade completely. Leave them in the bowl and cover them. Let the pork chops sit in the marinade in the refrigerator for 15 minutes or so.
  2. While they marinate, pre-heat the oven to 400 and get out a small baking dish. Once they're ready, coat the pork chops in the panko breadcrumbs. The cashew butter will help the breadcrumbs adhere to the pork chops! Then get the baking dish in the oven to cook them for 30 minutes. The panko will get crispy and golden on the outside.
  3. When they are done, take the pork chops out and let them rest for a couple of minutes. Then just serve with potatoes and greens on the side! Such a simple, amazing dinner loaded with flavor. Enjoy!
