Asian Pork Chops

I have another secret love and that is asian food with pork as the main meat.  These Asian Pork Chops totally hit that spot as not only were the flavours asian inspired but they were wonderful tender and very easy to prepare, cook and plate.
I have a love of sesame and ginger infused soy - it just screams basic Asian cuisine.  Served simply with steamed rice and vegetables this was a perfect mid week wonder.
