Brown Sugar Pork Chops

Searing pork chops over medium heat instead of high heat ensures that the meat cooks through evenly and stays juicy. A bit of sugar in the spice mix gives the pork a nice color and caramelized crust. The whole dish—chops plus a glazy sauce—comes together in under half an hour. The seasoning options are endless (think caraway seeds, turmeric, Aleppo pepper) and leftovers also taste great cold. In this master recipe, the warming heat of mustard seeds and ginger becomes even more aromatic with a generous dose of dried onion and cumin.
