Wok's For Dinner: Sweet 'n' Sour Pork Chops

This meal isn't quite what you'd find at your favorite Chinese restaurant. But it is really tasty! I came across the recipe at Taste of Home several months ago. I've made it as a freezer meal twice now.

Sweet 'n' Sour Pork Chops
3 boneless pork loin chops
1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 cup water
1/3 cup cider vinegar
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 Tbsp soy sauce
1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 Tbsp cornstarch
2 Tbsp cold water

Sprinkle pork chops with pepper. In a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray, cook pork over medium heat for 4-6 minutes on each side or until lightly browned. Remove and keep warm. Add the water, vinegar, brown sugar, soy sauce and Worcestershire sauce to skillet; stir to loosen browned bits. Bring to a boil. Combine cornstarch and cold water until smooth; stir into skillet. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Return chops to the pan. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 4-5 minutes or until a meat thermometer reads 160 degrees.

If freezing: Place cooked chops and sauce into a freezer bag. Squeeze out the air, seal, lay flat and freeze. Thaw 24 hours in refrigerator. Heat in microwave. Serve.
