Five-Spice Barbecued Pork Chops with Asian-Style Succotash


  • 4 center-cut boneless pork chops

  • 1 teaspoon five-spice powder

  • 2 teaspoons grill seasoning blend, such as McCormick brand Montreal Steak Seasoning

  • 4 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided

  • 1/4 cup hoisin sauce, found on the Asian foods aisle at the grocery store, divided

  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped

  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped

  • 2 generous handfuls of pea pods, coarsely chopped

  • 2 cups frozen corn

  • 4 scallions, chopped

  • Juice of 1 lime

  • 2 teaspoons hot sauce


Season chops liberally on both sides with a combination of the five-spice powder and grill seasoning. Heat 2 tablespoons vegetable oil in nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook chops 6 minutes on each side, then add about 1/4 cup hoisin to pan, heat through and coat chops in sauce. Turn off heat.

While chops cook, heat remaining 2 tablespoons oil over medium-high heat. Add garlic and pepper, cook for 2 minutes, then add pea pods, corn and scallions and cook for 3 minutes more. Toss succotash with lime juice and hot sauce.

Serve chops with succotash alongside.
