Instructions
  1. Whisk shallot, brown sugar, fish sauce, vinegar, and pepper in a shallow dish. Using a fork, pierce pork chops all over (to allow marinade to penetrate faster) and add to marinade in dish. Turn to coat. Cover and let pork chops marinate at room temperature, turning occasionally, 20 minutes.
  2. Remove pork chops from marinade, scraping off excess (reserve marinade for sauce). Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Lightly season pork chops with salt. Cook until browned and cooked through, about 4 minutes per side. Let pork chops rest 10 minutes before serving.
  3. Meanwhile, bring marinade to a boil in a small saucepan and cook until reduced to 1/4 cup, about 4 minutes.
  4. Serve pork chops with reduced marinade and lime halves.
Recipe Notes

The original recipe recommends going easy on the salt when seasoning the chops as the marinade itself may be fairly salty, especially after it reduces. This is a tasty play on the pork chop and allows us to mix things up a bit in the kitchen. More nutritional information can be found on the recipe source Bon Appetit.
