This recipe is a keeper! We rotate a lot between pork, beef (usually ground chuck), and chicken. I am always looking for something new to do.

San Francisco Pork Chops
1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
4 3/4 inch thick boneless pork chops, trimmed
1 clove garlic minced
1/4 cup beef broth
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 Tablespoons brown sugar
2 teaspoons vegetable oil
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
2 teaspoons cornstarch
2 Tablespoons water (*I used beef broth.)
Heat 1 Tablespoon vegetable oil in a skillet over medium heat. Brown chops in hot oil, about 5 minutes per side, remove to a plate, reserving oil in skillet.
Cook and stir garlic in reserved drippings until fragrant, about 1 minute. Whisk beef broth, soy sauce, brown sugar, 2 teaspoons of vegetable oil, and red pepper flakes in a bowl, dissolving brown sugar. Return pork chops to skillet and pour soy sauce mixture over chops. Bring to boil, cover skillet, and reduce heat to low. Simmer chops until tender, 30-35 minutes, turning once halfway through cooking.
Transfer chops to a serving platter. Whisk cornstarch and water in a small bowl until smooth, stir into pan juices and simmer until thickened, about 5 minutes. Pour sauce over chops to serve.
*I made 1 cup of beef broth because that is what my packet makes. I used 2 Tablespoons of this instead of water in the last step.
