Sesame Crusted Pork Chops, from Rachael

Sesame Crusted Pork Chops

1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon Chinese five spice powder
4 boneless center cut pork chops
2 tablespoons white sesame seeds
2 teaspoons black sesame seeds (I am leaving these out)
1 teaspoon orange marmalade, divided
2 tablespoons peanut oil

Preheat oven to 375. Mix salt with five spice powder and sprinkle on both sides of pork chops. Combine both types of sesame seeds in a shallow dish. Brush one side of each chop with marmalade and coat that side in seed mixture. Saute chops, seedside down, in oil in a large oven proof sautee pan over medium heat. Cook until golden, 3-4 minutes, then turn chops over and trasfer pan to the oven and roast until cooked through, 8-10 minutes.
