Sink your teeth into tonight’s juicy pork chops done Japanese-style: they’re seasoned with a traditional seven-spice blend before being coated in a thick mixture of honey, soy sauce, vinegar, garlic and ginger. Then we pan sear the chops to create a rich, thick glaze. For a twist on the classic cabbage slaw, we add bok choy tips for some extra crunch and green. Serve on a bed of savoury red quinoa and subtle yet fragrant scallions and you’re sure to relish every last bite!

    Cook the quinoa
    In a medium pot, combine the quinoa, 1 cup of water (double for 4 portions) and a pinch of salt; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat, cover and let simmer, 14 to 16 minutes, until the quinoa is tender. Fluff with a fork and set aside in a warm spot.

    Mise en place
    While the quinoa cooks, halve the cucumber lengthwise; thinly slice crosswise into half moons. Cut off and discard the root ends of the bok choy; separate the leaves. Cut off and discard the root end of the scallions; thinly slice, separating the white bottoms and green tops. Mince the garlic. Peel and mince the ginger. In a small bowl, combine the garlic, ginger, honey, soy sauce and vinegar.

    Cook the pork
    In a large pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Pat the pork chops dry with paper towel; season with ½ the spice blend and S&P. Add the pork chops to the pan and cook, 3 to 5 minutes. Flip the pork and add ½ the soy sauce mixture. Cook, 3 to 5 minutes, until nicely browned and cooked through.
