  • 3 tablespoons miso, divided

  • 1 large egg

  • 1 teaspoon hot sauce, such as Sriracha (Optional)

  • ½ teaspoon ground pepper, divided

  • ¾ cup whole-wheat panko breadcrumbs

  • 4 boneless pork loin chops (about 1 pound), trimmed

  • 3 tablespoons rice vinegar

  • 2 tablespoons avocado oil

  • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise

  • 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger

  • teaspoon salt

  • 5 cups shredded cabbage

  • 2 cups sliced snow peas

  • 1 cup sliced red bell pepper

  • 2 scallions, sliced


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Coat a wire rack with cooking spray and place it on a large rimmed baking sheet.

  2. Whisk 2 tablespoons miso, egg, hot sauce (if using) and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a shallow dish. Place panko in a second shallow dish. Coat each pork chop with the miso mixture and then dredge in the panko. Place the chops on the wire rack and coat both sides with cooking spray. Bake until just cooked through, 15 to 18 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, whisk vinegar, oil, mayonnaise, ginger, salt, the remaining 1 tablespoon miso and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a large bowl. Add cabbage, snow peas, bell pepper and scallions and toss to coat well. Serve the pork chops with the slaw.


To make ahead: Refrigerate slaw for up to 3 days.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
