Part 2 of recipes for a semi-local birthday meal

This might be cheating, since this was the non-local part of our meal. However, you can most definitely find local pork chops in Missouri and that would probably make this taste even better!

Marinade mixture:
4 tbsp lime juice
2 tbsp sesame oil
2 tbsp white rice vinegar
1 tsp soy sauce
1/2 tsp Sriracha
1 tsp sea salt
1 tsp black pepper
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp ground ginger

Pour ingredients for marinade into gallon-sized zip lock bag. Shake up. Place 4 large boneless, thick cut pork chops into bag. (We had 2 leftover) Shake until chops have been evenly coated. Let all air out of bag, reseal, and fold bag so pork chops are emersed into liquid. Marinate for at least 1 hour, or overnight.

Remove bag from fridge. Heat skillet on  high heat, and place 2 tbsp olive oil and a sprinkling of sesame oil on skillet. Lay down pork chops and quickly sear each side to get the nice, dark brown appearance on the outside. (About 30 seconds each side) Turn heat down to medium-high, and cook for approximatley 5 minutes each side or until pork chop feels 98% done. Place pork chops on plate and tent with aluminum foil, let rest for 5-10 minutes. This will allow the chops to finish cooking without drying out.

Serve! Super easy, tasty, and quick!
