Hoisin & Honey Glazed Pork Chops

Please don't be frightened by some unusual ingredients. Be intrigued. This recipe is delici-oso and we love it.

It calls for:
Hoisen-ingredients
1 bunch scallions (you know, green onions?)
1 TBSP Dijon Mustard
2 TBSP Hoisin Sauce
1/4 tsp Ginger
1/4 C Asian Oyster Sauce (contrary to popular belief, it does NOT taste like oysters)
2 TBSP Honey
1 TBSP Soy Sauce
2-4 Pork Chops

1. Preheat oven to 400
2. Cut scallions into little crunchy pieces, like in the photo below
3. Whisk together the remaining ingredients, (except the chops)
Stirring-the-pork
4. Add scallions and pork, and cover those babies... you want them drenched
5. Set in a baking pan and spoon the rest of the sauce over the chops (you DON'T have to eat all those onions, but they have great flavor, so just let them hang out until you're done cooking and then decide if you want them)
Chops-ready-to-go
6. Roast 15-20 minutes
7. Turn on broiler and broil until top is slightly carmelized
Hoisen-chops

And then you eat them. And they're awesome.

That looks pretty good. I don't think I've ever bought Asian Oyster sauce...or scallions. How embarrassing.

these look so good! Do you think it would taste good with chicken? I'm too cheap for tender pork chops! :)
