Hoisin-Glazed Pork Chops
with Sesame Slaw Salad
One of our favorite ways to add tons of flavor to any protein in mere minutes? Whipping up a delectable glaze. Here, we blend savory-sweet hoisin sauce with sesame oil, vinegar, garlic, and scallions, then spoon the mixture over pork chops just before serving. It’s paired with a crunchy, savory sesame slaw-style salad, and garnished with a zippy shower of crisp scallion greens. Now THAT’S what we call a winning dinner idea!
Produced in a facility that processes eggs, milk, fish, peanuts, sesame, shellfish, soy, tree nuts, and wheat.
