Pork Roast in Red Wine

I made these Pork Chops for dinner last night and it was absolutely exquisite. I adapted it from an old cook book from my mom's collection and i am so happy i stumbled onto this particular one. Initially, i wasn't too sure if i should risk it but my heart just asked me to go for it. While cooking the sauce, i was feeling all light headed as the aroma of the wine wafted up and tickled my senses. Then when all the flavours came together like it was meant to be, i felt so elated and wished i had some unexpected guests knocking at the door. This one is a sure keepsake for a long time for me. Am sure, you will love it too!

You will need:
Pork Chops or Pork Spareribs - 1 Kg
Italian Seasoning - 1 1/2 tsp
Dry Red Wine - 2 cups
Hot and Sweet Tomato Ketchup - 1/2 cup
Soya Sauce - 2 tbsp
Honey - 3 tbsp
Ginger Grated - 1 tsp
Garlic chopped finely - 4
Pepper Powder - 1 1/2 tsp
Sesame Seeds - as required
Salt to taste

Cook the Pork with the Italian seasoning and salt in a little water. I pressure cooked them for about 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, make the sauce by combining all other ingredients with salt in a sauce pan.
Bring the mixture to a quick boil, reduce the flame and boil it for another 10 minutes or so until the sauce thickens and becomes golden in colour.
Remove from flame and strain.
Arrange the cooked Pork in a grilling sheet, pour half the sauce over it, sprinkle with sesame seeds and grill for about 10 minutes in a preheated oven at 180 Degrees Centrigrade.
Turn the chops over. Pour the remaining sauce and sprinkle with sesame seeds. 
Return to the oven for another 10 minutes.
Take it out of the oven and let it rest for another 5 minutes.
Serve warm with Mashed Potatoes and Garlic Bread.
