3 Tbs. soy sauce
3 Tbs Honey
3 Tbs. Dry Sherry
4 pork chops - trimmed
4 tsp whole grain or brown mustard
1 large and firm pear, cored and thinly sliced
1 large potato - cut into large chunks
1 yam peeled and cut into large chunks
2 large carrots peeled and cut into large chunks
2 parsnips peeled and cut into large chunks
1 large onion, chopped
2 Tbs of your favorite fresh herb such as rosemary, thyme, basil, lavendar, or sage.
When cutting the vegetables into chunks, try to make the chunks fairly even in size so that the veggie mixture becomes fairly homogenous in its size and appearance. Place all the vegetable chunks and onion pieces in a steamer basket together. Toss the veggies so they are mixed up and the smaller onion pieces are mixed throughout.
Set Pork on top of veggies and sprinkle herbs on top.
Place pear slices on top of the pork so that they fan across the pork and then whisk together all the "wet" ingredients and drizzle the sauce over the top of the entire concotion.
Turn on water under steamer to boil, cover and let steam for 20-30 minutes. The time required will depend upon the thickness of the pork pieces. Thinner pieces (which tend to be closer to 3 oz servings) will cook faster than the 30 minutes listed.
