6 pork chops


  • 2 tablespoons grapeseed oil

  • 6 (5 ounce) boneless pork chops

  • 1 ½ cups water

  • ¼ cup dry white wine

  • ¼ cup soy sauce

  • ¼ teaspoon ground ginger

  • ¼ teaspoon ground paprika

  • ¼ teaspoon ground turmeric

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper


  1. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Brown pork chops in the hot oil on both sides, 5 to 7 minutes total.

  2. Mix water, wine, soy sauce, ginger, paprika, turmeric, salt, and pepper together in a container. Pour mixture over pork chops; it's okay if chops are not completely covered with the liquid.

  3. Cover the skillet with a lid or aluminum foil, leaving a gap for steam to escape, and simmer, without flipping, just until there is no liquid remaining and chops are no longer pink in the centers, 1 to 1 1/2 hours. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 145 degrees F (63 degrees C).

Cook's Note:

You can use safflower oil instead of grapeseed.
