Our Korean-Argentinean mash-up, kimchi chimichurri, provides a brilliant sweet-savory (and paleo) addition to these easy pork chops.
In your bag
- 3 scallions
- 1 lime
- 3 or 4 sprigs fresh cilantro
- 1 ounce pureed kimchi
- 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
- 2 boneless pork loin chops (about 6 ounces each)
- 1 sweet potato
- 2 or 3 heads baby bok choy
- 1 or 2 cloves peeled fresh garlic
If you have the time, you can brine the pork chops before cooking them: In a medium bowl, dissolve 2 tablespoons each sugar and salt in 2 cups warm water. Submerge the chops and let stand at room temperature for at least 20 minutes and up to 1 hour, or cover and refrigerate for up to 9 hours. Drain and pat dry. Don’t season them with salt in Step 2, but otherwise follow the recipe as written.
