A note about serious food allergies

Mirin and ginger go together like peanut butter and jelly, so we combined them to make this succulent marinated chop. It’s served with honey miso “hasselback” carrots – so fancy. To review, this dish has honey, butter, miso, mirin, and ginger. All the flavors. So many flavors. So little time. Why not eat the best ones all together? You’re welcome.

Recipe Steps

You Will Need

    1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Thoroughly rinse produce and pat dry. Peel carrots and trim off tops. Slice green onions thinly on an angle. In a medium mixing bowl, combine mirin and ginger. Rinse pork chops and pat dry. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper on both sides. Place pork chops in mirin-ginger marinade, completely coating them. Reserve in refrigerator.

  • Step 2 - Prepare the Carrots
    2

    Prepare the Carrots

    Line a baking sheet with foil and coat with cooking spray. Cut a series of slits into carrots. The slits should go ⅔ into the carrot, but not cut all the way through and should be spaced ¼" apart. Every 2" cut all the way through.

  • Step 3 - Cook the Carrots

    Cook the Carrots

    Toss carrots on baking sheet with 1 tsp. olive oil, salt, and pepper. Spread out carrots, making sure slit side is up. Bake in oven 15-20 minutes. Carrots should be browned on bottoms, tender, and slits should be opened up. In a small mixing bowl, combine miso, honey, a pinch of salt, and 1 Tbsp. water. Spoon miso-honey glaze over carrots and return to oven for 3 minutes. Remove from oven, sprinkle with green onions, and set aside.

  • Step 4 - Cook the Pork Chops

    Cook the Pork Chops

    Heat a large oven-safe pan over medium heat. Remove pork chops from marinade and pat dry, reserving marinade. Add ½ tsp. olive oil to hot pan. Add pork chops to pan and cook first side, 3-4 minutes, until chops are browned. Flip chops and add marinade liquid and 2 Tbsp. water. Place in oven 6-8 minutes, or until the chops reach a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees. Remove chops to a plate to rest. Return pan to stove, bring juices to a boil and swirl in half of the butter. Set sauce aside and wipe out pan.

  • Step 5 - Cook the Peas
