  1. Mahalo nui for this simple but ono recipe! I have used this recipe several times, and it is the best when using Pork Chop steak cuts. I can’t find “Accent” what would be a equivalent seasoning? I substituted the Accent with Emeril’s Essences seasoning.

    • I’m so happy you like the recipe. Accent seasoning is an option; it can also be found in Asian markets known as Monosodium Glutamate (flavor enhancer). Accent can be found in the seasoning aisle at an grocery store; red and white container.
