Sometimes the best food is really the simplest. There are many ways of preparing pork chops, but the way we have our pork chops most frequently is with a simple marinade and pan frying them. Of course tenderizing the pork chops is of utmost importance to enjoy tender, moist and juicy pork chops.

Ingredients

  • 2 pieces Pork chops
  • 1 teaspoon Oyster sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon Chinese five spice powder
  • 1 teaspoon Soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon Hua tiao jiu, or Chinese cooking wine
  • 1/2 teaspoon White pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon Baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon Sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon Sesame oil

    Instructions

    • Rinse pork chop and pat dry. Tenderize the pork chop by tapping with the back of a knife or cleaver.
    • Combine all seasonings and marinate the pork chop for at least 2 hours, preferably overnight.
    • Heat a pan with oil. Shallow fry the pork chop over medium high heat until cooked through and golden on both sides.
    • Heat up the balance of the marinade to make as a sauce and drizzle on the pork chop if needed.
    • Serve warm on top of a plate of white rice or noodles. Can also halved a toasted bread roll or bun and sandwiched in between as a pork chop bun.

Enjoy!

Notes

Sear the chops for 2 – 3 minutes on each side. As soon as the chops are browned, flip them. Repeat the same for the other side.
If using cast iron pan, turn off the heat once you have flipped the chops. Cast iron holds heat very well and there will be enough heat to finish cooking the meat. Cover the pan to finish cooking for thicker chops.
If using normal pan and the chops are a lot thicker, you can put a cover on the pan and let the chops finish cook for 5 minutes or so on low heat.
If you see juice oozing out of the top of the chops, it is definitely done.
