Sweet Ginger Pork Chops
with Buttery Rice & Roasted Broccoli
Pork chops are always a weeknight winner. They’re satisfying, speedy, and so versatile, which is why our chefs are always brainstorming new ways to take ’em to the next level. The kicker this week: a fresh ginger and apricot jam pan sauce. On the side, there’s roasted broccoli and a bed of buttery jasmine rice (perfect for catching any runoff sauce). Prepare for a flavor explosion.
