These pork chops are truly delicious!

Sitting atop sesame seed-dusted green beans, the meal is complete with the addition of a side of steamed jasmine rice. Enjoy this . . . it’s easy and healthy!

Miso Mustard Pork Chops with Sesame Green Beans

2 large pork chops, trimmed
2 tbs. miso paste
1 tbs. mirin
1 tbs. lime juice
1 tbs. grapefruit juice
1 tbs. golden caster sugar
1 tsp. prepared English mustard
2 tsp. sesame oil
7 oz. green beans, trimmed
2 tsp. sesame seeds, white or black, plus extra to serve

Mix together the miso paste, mirin, lime juice, grapefruit juice, sugar, mustard, and 1 tsp. of the sesame oil. Heat a grill or griddle pan and cook the pork chops 10-12 minutes in total, turning and brushing with the sauce.

Meanwhile, bring water to boil in a skillet and cook the green beans for 2 minutes. Drain and return to the pan with the remaining 1 tsp. sesame oil and the sesame seeds. Cook for 2 minutes, then remove to a serving plate. Top with the pork chops and sprinkle with extra sesame seeds.
