1/3 c. low-sodium soy sauce
2 tbsp. honey
1/4 tsp. five-spice powder
Kosher salt and black pepper
4 bone-in pork chops, about 1 inch thick
2 plums, pitted and quartered
12 scallions, ends trimmed
1 tbsp. olive oil

Heat a grill or grill pan to medium-high. In a small bowl, combine the soy sauce, honey, five-spice powder and 1/4 tsp. pepper for the sauce.
Season the pork chops with 1 tsp. salt and 1/4 tsp. pepper. Grill for 10 minutes, turning once. Using a brush, baste the chops with the sauce and grill until cooked through, about 2 minutes more.
Meanwhile, toss the plums and scallions in the oil. Grill the plums for 5 minutes, turning occasionally. Grill the scallions for 2 minutes. Divide the pork chops among individual plates and serve with the plums and scallions. Drizzle with the extra sauce.
Shortcut: Use boneless pork chops to halve the cooking time.
Makes 4 servings.
