Pecan-Coated Pork Chops

  1. 1/2 cup light soy sauce
  2. 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  3. 2 scant tablespoons dark brown sugar
  4. 4 medium scallions, white and green parts, minced
  5. 2 teaspoons prepared white horseradish
  6. Four 8-ounce centercut pork chops, about 3/4 inch thick
  7. 1/4 cup olive oil or canola oil
  8. 1/4 cup finely chopped pecans
  9. 1/4 cup white cornmeal
  10. 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  11. 1 teaspoon salt
  12. 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  1. In a small baking dish, combine the soy sauce, lemon juice, brown sugar, scallions and horseradish. Add the pork chops, cover with plastic wrap and marinate at room temperature for 35 minutes, turning occasionally.
  2. Heat the oil in a large, heavy, cast-iron skillet. In a sturdy paper bag, combine the pecans, cornmeal, flour, salt and pepper. Put 1 of the pork chops in the bag and shake until well coated. Repeat with the remaining pork chops.
  3. Add the pork chops to the skillet and cook over moderate heat until nicely browned and cooked through, 4 to 5 minutes per side. Transfer to warmed plates and serve at once.
