1/4 cup plus 6 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

1 shallot, sliced

3 cloves garlic, minced

4 ripe beefsteak tomatoes, cored and chopped

2 tablespoons mirin

4 center-cut pork chops (about 1/2-inch thick)

Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

1 leek (white portion only) thoroughly washed


  1. 1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Heat 1/4 cup olive oil in a skillet. Add the shallots and garlic and cook until translucent, about 3 minutes.
  2. 2. Stir in the tomatoes and mirin; cook over medium heat until the mixture is almost dry, about 15 minutes.
  3. 3. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large skillet. Sprinkle the chops with salt and pepper. Sear the chops until brown, about 1 1/2 minutes on each side. Transfer to the oven and cook until an instant-read thermometer reaches 145 degrees F, about 5 minutes.
  4. 4. Add the remaining 4 tablespoons olive oil to the pan. Thinly slice the white portion of the leek. Add the leeks to the hot oil and fry until crispy.
