4 servings (serving size: 1 pork chop, 2 tablespoons sauce, and 1/2 cup noodles)

Apricot preserves and hoisin sauce pair perfectly with pork chops in this Asian-inspired pork supper.  Serve with snow peas or broccoli for a satisfying meal.

How to Make It

Step 1

Cook noodles according to package directions.

Step 2

While noodles cook, combine broth, preserves, and hoisin in a medium bowl, stirring with a whisk.

Step 3

Heat sesame oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle pork chops with salt and pepper. Add pork to pan; cook 2 minutes on each side or until browned. Add broth mixture; bring to a boil, and cook until sauce is reduced to 1/2 cup (about 8 minutes). Serve over noodles.

My husband and I enjoyed this recipe. I followed it as written except for adding red pepper flakes and serving over brown rice with edemame. The sauce gave it a yummy sweet heat and something different to do with the pork chops. I don't know if it's worthy of a special occasion, but I gave of 4 stars because of how easy and tasty it was. Will make again.

Loved this easy recipe! I followed the recipe as written with the exception of two things: I served it over brown rice instead of the noodles and I added about a tsp of crushed red pepper flakes to the sauce. The flavors work perfectly together!

As a Japanese person, this combination makes me want to run to the nearest hole and hide. I guess if you are non-Japanese and unbiased about how somen should be eaten, go ahead and enjoy....

Great apricot and hoisin flavors, and the somen and pork paired perfectly together. I would change the presentation however - chop up the pork rather than serving in individual portions, toss together with the sauce and noodles, and perhaps add a few veggies to the dish as well.
