- 1/2 cup Vegetable Oil
- 1/4 cup Rice Vinegar
- 1/2 cup Brown Sugar

Mix together soy sauce, oil, vinegar, brown sugar, Chinese five spice, and garlic powder. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil, and place the pork chops on the foil. Brush all over with sauce. Add the pear slices around the pork chops, and brush with sauce.
Bake the pork chops and pears in an oven preheated to 425ºF for 12 minutes. Remove, flip pork chops and pears, and brush with remaining sauce.
Bake for another 8 minutes, until the pork chops reach 145ºF, and are tender. Remove and serve with rice, and green onions. Feel free to top with soy sauce or hot sauce for even more flavor. Enjoy!
