  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Thoroughly rinse produce and pat dry. Rinse pork chops and pat dry. Slice radish into thin rounds. Use a vegetable peeler to slice cucumber into long, thin strips. Discard the root of green onions. Slice on a bias (45 degree angle).

  2. 2

    Marinate the Pork Chops

    Place the Korean BBQ sauce and pork chops in a large mixing bowl. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Cover the pork chops with the sauce and let marinate for 10-15 minutes in the refrigerator before cooking.

  3. 3

    Cook the Soba Noodles

    Bring medium pot with 4 cups of water to a boil. Add the noodles to the boiling water and cook for 5-6 minutes, or until tender. Watch the noodles closely because they cook quickly. Ideally, noodles should be tender but firm. Rinse with cold water and strain well.

  4. 4

    Prepare the Sesame Soba

    Add the cooked and cooled noodles, shaved cucumber, Sweet Asian Dressing, half the sesame seeds, and green onion (reserving some for garnish, if desired) to a mixing bowl. Mix together and season with a pinch of salt and pepper.

  5. 5

    Cook the Chops

    If grilling or using grill pan: preheat grill to medium-high heat, about 375°F. Cook chops on each side for 5-6 minutes, or until they begin to caramelize and firm to the touch or internal temperature reaches 145 degrees If pan-searing: warm 1 tsp. olive oil in a medium pan over medium-high heat. Add the chops and cook on each side for 6-7 minutes, or until caramelized and firm to the touch or internal temperature reaches 145 degrees

  6. 6

    Plate the Dish

    Place a serving of sesame-cucumber soba noodles in the middle of the plate. Rest a pork chop against the noodles. Top the chop with radish sprouts. Garnish the dish with remaining sesame seeds, green onions, and sliced radishes.
