The broiler is an underutilized part of the oven,” observes Jonathan Waxman, chef at Barbuto in Manhattan. Here, he broils pork chops for just a few minutes on each side, then spoons a tangy soy-ginger sauce on top. Slideshow: More Pork Recipes

How to Make It

Step 1    

Preheat the broiler. Lightly grease a medium roasting pan with olive oil.

Step 2    

In a spice grinder, finely grind the star anise pod. Transfer to a small bowl and stir in the cumin, coriander, fennel, paprika, cinnamon and 
½ teaspoon each of salt and pepper. Rub the spice mix all over the pork chops. Set the chops in the roasting pan and broil 6 inches from the 
heat until golden and cooked through, 4 to 5 minutes per side. Transfer the pork chops to plates. 

Step 3    

Add the soy sauce, vinegar, sesame oil and ginger to the roasting 
pan and simmer over moderate heat for 2 minutes, stirring and scraping up any browned bits with a wooden spoon. Whisk in the butter.

Step 4    

Spoon the soy-ginger sauce over the pork chops and garnish 
with cilantro.

Serve With

Sautéed spinach.
