Cook Time 25 MIN

Serves 4

Ingredients :

  • PAM® Original Cooking Spray
  • 1/2 tsp (2 mL) cornstarch
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) water
  • 4 bone-in pork chops (3/4 lb/340 g each)
  • 1/2 tsp (2.5 mL) salt
  • 1/8 tsp (0.6 mL) ground black pepper
  • 3 tbsp (45 mL) canola oil
  • 3 cups (750 mL) button mushrooms, halved
  • 2 cups (500 mL) leeks, cleaned, dried and sliced into 1/2 inch (1 1/4 cm) pieces
  • 3/4 cup (175 mL) julienned red pepper
  • 1/4 cup (60 mL) low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) VH® General Tao Stir-Fry Sauce

Directions :

  1. Spray 13” x 9” baking dish with cooking spray; set aside. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C) . Combine cornstarch and water (slurry); set aside.
  2. Season chops with salt and pepper. Heat large skillet over medium-high heat; when hot add oil. Sear each side of chops 2-3 minutes or until they are golden brown (cook in batches to prevent overcrowding of pan).
  3. Remove browned chops from skillet and place in prepared baking dish. Add mushrooms, leeks and red pepper to skillet and stir-fry for 3-5 minutes or until vegetables are soft. Add chicken broth, VH® General Tao Stir-Fry Sauce and reserved slurry mixture to skillet; bring mixture to a boil. Cook 1-2 minutes or until sauce has slightly thickened.
  4. Pour sauce mixture over seared pork chops. Bake 15-20 minutes or until chops have reached an internal temperature of 160°F (70°C).
  5. Serve immediately.


  1. Serve with mashed red potatoes or cooked rice.
  2. For a quicker meal with the same flavour profile try using centre cut boneless pork chops.
