Hoisin Pork Chops with Fennel Slaw

Total Time

Prep: 25 min. Grill: 15 min.


4 servings

The Asian-inspired pork chops are coated with a spicy glaze that gives them a rich, reddish-brown color. The unique Fennel Slaw goes so well with these chops.—Gilda Lester, Millsboro, Delaware


  • 1 large fennel bulb, halved and thinly sliced
  • 1 cup thinly sliced radicchio
  • 1/2 cup julienned green pepper
  • 1/4 cup dried currants
  • 1 tablespoon capers, drained
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fennel fronds
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup hoisin sauce
  • 2 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon molasses
  • 4 bone-in pork loin chops (7 ounces each)


  1. In a large bowl, combine the first five ingredients. In a small bowl, whisk the lemon juice, honey, oil, salt and pepper sauce. Pour over slaw mixture and toss to coat. Sprinkle with fennel fronds. Chill until serving.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the ketchup, hoisin sauce, chipotle peppers, balsamic vinegar and molasses. Using long-handled tongs, moisten a paper towel with cooking oil and lightly coat the grill rack.
  3. Grill pork, covered, over medium heat or broil 4-5 in. from the heat for 4-5 minutes on each side or until a thermometer reads 145°, basting occasionally with glaze mixture. Let meat stand for 5 minutes before serving. Serve with slaw.
