Whisk all ingredients together well, adjust seasoning according to your taste and the sweetness of the jam used, and marinate pork chops for about 30 minutes.
If cooking on the stovetop, scrape marinade off and saute pork chops on medium for 7 minutes per side. Remove from pan, keep chops warm and stir in marinade, heating until it bubbles plus 2 minutes, then spoon over pork chops and serve.
If baking, scrape marinade off of chops, brown them on both sides and cover with marinade. Cover with foil or a lid and bake for 1/2 hour then turn the chops, cover and bake for 15 minutes, uncover and bake 15 minutes. Serve.
NOTES : Dark, flavorful, Chinese-influenced pork marinade that becomes a= sauce.
