Vietnamese Marinated Pork Chops with Spicy Sauce

We’re proud of all of our sauces, but especially our Vietnamese sauce.  It has that magical combination of sweet, sour, and umami that goes well with almost any meat or fish.  Even though many of our stores have empty shelves and meat cases, we came across these wonderful pork chops along with some fresh vegetables.  For this dish, we are going completely keto diet, using a parsnip puree instead of rice (parsnip puree will be posted separately).  The sweetness of the parsnip balances well with the flavors of pork and the salad.
