This Asian-style 30-minute meal pairs ginger and apricot sauced pork chops with a pasta and snow pea side dish.




  • In a medium-size bowl, stir preserves, teriyaki sauce, mustard and ginger. Set aside.

  • Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Season pork chops with salt and pepper and cook for 2 minutes per side or until lightly browned. Spread 1 tablespoon of the apricot preserve mixture over each chop and cook, covered, over medium-low heat for 6 minutes or until an instant-read thermometer registers 160°F when inserted into thickest part of meat.

  • Meanwhile, bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add snow peas and cook for 3 minutes. Add pasta and cook for an additional 2 minutes or until just tender.

  • Drain pasta and snow peas and place in a large bowl. Set aside 1/4 cup of the apricot preserve mixture. Toss remaining mixture with the pasta. Garnish with scallions and sesame seeds.

  • Serve pasta with pork chops, spooning reserved apricot sauce on top.
