Since you can only do so much dining out/burning money, Jamie and I settled in for a nice, post ride home cooked meal. Originally we had planned on making Jenna's Chicken Parmesan with Pepperoni (totally up Jamie's alley), but as soon as we were settled and ready to make dinner, we realized one ingredient was missing.
O yeah, that one. Kinda important, no? So we had to rethink dinner with what we had. Pork chops in the fridge, coconut ginger rice in the cabinet, salad fixins. Perfect.
I found this recipe for Miso Glazed Pork Chops on Foodgawker and modified it a bit to work with what we had in the apartment.
Miso Glazed Pork Chops
1 tbsp miso paste
2 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp rice wine vinegar
1 tbsp white wine
1 tbsp mirin
1/2 tsp garlic powder
juice of half a lemon
3 boneless pork chops
Whisk all ingredients together and marinate pork for 20 minutes on each side. Heat a grill pan and cook for 3 minutes on each side.
Spoon marinade over pork and bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes.
Served with some coconut rice and a big bowl of salad
Well balanced dinner!
