  11. Cook until undersides are golden brown, about 3 minutes.

  13. Transfer chops to a serving platter and keep warm; repeat to cook remaining pork in remaining butter. 
  14. Strain soy sauce mixture and divide among 4-6 small bowls to use as a dipping sauce.

Healthier Alternative: To cut down on your saturated fat intake, sauté the pork chops in olive oil instead of butter.
