Mix all sauce ingredients in a heavy bottomed sauce pan and heat to a simmer. Continue stirring and heating until it's hot and thickened.
Meantime - rub 6 pork chops (or chicken breasts) with a bit of garlic and sesame oil. Grill over hot coals, just until juicy, tender, and juices are clear.
Serve grilled meat with rice, a little yummy sauce drizzled over both! Add a green salad and steamed broccoli or asparagus to make the perfect meal.
- We love this recipe, and broiled meat in the winter is as good as grilled in the summer.
