Ingredients

1 onion (1/2 chopped, 1/2 thinly sliced)

1 1-inch piece fresh ginger, peeled and sliced

1 to 2 tablespoons Sriracha

2 tablespoons rice vinegar

1 tablespoon sweet paprika

Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

4 1/2-inch-thick boneless pork chops

2 tablespoons vegetable oil

1/2 small head napa cabbage, chopped

1 large crisp apple (such as Honeycrisp or Fuji), thinly sliced

1 bunch watercress, thick stems trimmed

1/4 cup sour cream

Directions

  1. Preheat the broiler. Combine the chopped onion, ginger, Sriracha, rice vinegar, paprika, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 cup water in a blender; puree and set aside.
  2. Season the pork chops with salt and pepper. Transfer to a baking sheet and broil until lightly browned and cooked through (do not turn), about 7 minutes. Tent with foil and set aside.
  3. Meanwhile, heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the cabbage, sliced onion and 1/2 teaspoon salt; cook, stirring, until softened and lightly browned, 2 to 4 minutes. Stir in the onion-ginger puree and cook until the cabbage is well coated and tender, about 2 minutes. Add the apple and watercress and toss to coat. Season with pepper.
  4. Divide the pork among plates; drizzle with any juices from the baking sheet. Serve with the cabbage-apple mixture and sour cream.
