Kuniko Yagi’s secret ginger sauce is all-purpose: The chef at L.A.’s Hinoki & the Bird seasons everything with it—these pork chops, for starters, but also steamed eggplant and grilled bok choy. Slideshow: More Pork Recipes

Recipe from Food & Wine Chefs' Easy Weeknight Dinners.

How to Make It

Step 1    

Light a grill or preheat a grill pan. In a small saucepan, bring the 
mirin and sake to a boil and simmer for 30 seconds. Stir in the ginger, soy sauce and 2 tablespoons of the olive oil. Remove from the heat.

Step 2    

Season the pork chops with salt and pepper, rub them with the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil and grill over moderately high heat for about 6 minutes per side, until nicely charred outside and 
just pink in the center. Transfer the pork chops to plates and pour 
the ginger sauce on top.
