Pork Marinade (6hours):
2T Soy Sauce
1tsp Sesame Seed Oil
1/8tsp Ginger Powder
1tsp Chinese 5 Spice
1/16tsp Liquid Hickory Smoke

Wasabi Raspberry Sauce:
1/4c Raspberry Preserve (Fresh Raspberries, smashed, may work*)

Garlic Clove, minced
Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Mix Pork Marinade. Brush ALL onto pork chops. Marinade 6 hours.
Mix sauce.
Heat skillet, adding some Extra Virgin Olive Oil or Butter Flavor Cooking Spray. On med.-high heat, once to a sizzle, lay in Chops. Cook about 5 minutes on each side.
In SEPARATE skillet: Sautee Mushrooms, Onions, and Garlic. Mix in Sauce with sauteed vegis, LAST FEW MINUTES. Cook down some.
Lay into Butter Flavor Cooking Sprayed baking dish. Top sauteed vegis over chops. Bake 450 for about 12minutes. Then, fill your belly!

wasabiraspberrypork3There was ONE person that slightly liked it better with the glaze brushed on  each side of the chops. And the Mushrooms, Onions, and Garlic, untouched, over the top. So, for that ONE person’s sake, The Directions for that is:
Heat Extra Virgin Olive Oil in skillet. Sear Pork on each side about 5minutes. Sautee Onions, Mushrooms, and Garlic in SEPARATE skillet.
Butter Flavor Cooking Spray Baking Dish. Brush BOTH sides of Pork with Sauce. Lay in baking dish. Top with sauteed vegis. Bake 450 for 12minutes.

Notes: Marinade was enough for 2-3 chops. You can up Wasabi, if like. Tweek to your taste. Endless Options. I was going to use Wasabi Paste, but the store did not have paste, only sauce. So, paste can be used. But use 1/2tsp and work your way up, taste testing!
I have not used fresh raspberries… Not sure how it’ll turn out. Let us know!

*I like it the way it is. You can choose to use dried beans, but, will need to alter, more broth. Longer cooking time may be needed. Also thickening. Like 1-2T Flour with some of the soup broth blended, well. Then stirred into the soup. May alter flavor, tho. Try above recipe FIRST!
