  • In a large skillet over medium high heat, heat the vegetable oil until hot and it begins to shimmer.
    3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • Add the pork chops and cook for about 4 minutes per side until they start to brown. Remove from the skillet and place on the pan inside the oven. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until they reach an internal temperature of 145 F.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the brown sugar, vinegar, ketchup, soy sauce and ginger, set aside.
    ⅓ cup brown sugar, ½ cup rice vinegar, 3 tablespoons ketchup, 2 tablespoons soy sauce, ½ teaspoon ground ginger
  • In the same skillet used to sear the pork chops, saute the garlic, bell pepper and onion over medium heat until they begin to soften, about 4 minutes.
    2 cloves garlic, minced, 1 red bell pepper, seeded and cut into 1 inch pieces, 1 green bell pepper, seeded and cut into 1 inch pieces, ½ white onion, thinly sliced
  • Add the vinegar sauce to the pan and bring to a simmer.
  • In a small bowl, use a fork to mix the cornstarch and water into a slurry. Add to the sauce and return to a simmer. Cook on low while stirring until it has thickened slightly, 3 to 4 minutes.
    1 tablespoon cornstarch, 2 tablespoons water
  • Spoon the sauce over the pork chops to serve.
