Chef Bradley’s 5-spice Pork Chops Recipe

   5-spice Pork chop

   (Serves 2-3)


  •    Four each 4-5 oz. pork loin chops
  •    2 Tbsp. soy sauce
  •    2 Tbsp. Mirin
  •    1 Tbsp. sesame oil
  •    2 Tbsp. Brown sugar
  •    1 tsp. 5-spice powder
  •    ½ tsp. kosher salt
  •    4 each star anise
  •   1 tsp. chopped garlic
  •   1 Tbsp. vegetable oil


  • Place pork chops in shallow pan
  • Combine soy, mirin, sesame oil, brown sugar, 5-spice, salt, star anise and garlic. Mix well. Reserve ¼ of marinade. Pour remainder of marinade over pork and all to marinate for one hour. Remove chops from marinade and pat dry
  • Heat vegetable oil in sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add pork and allow to sear on both sides. Finish in pre-heated 375° oven until internal temperature of 145°.
  • Place reserved marinade in small saucepan over medium heat and allow to reduce slightly. Drizzle over pork.

These chops would be great with a simple rice dish and sautéed broccoli rabe!
