There are so many different pork chops out there. I think there's pork chop dish in every cuisine. This one is something I just came up with that turned out great. So I should record it down before I forget what I put in it. If you are craving Asian-flavored meat, I recommend this one. :)
Ingredients:Pork chops - 4
Onion - 1 small (sliced)
Garlic - 2 cloves
Ginger - 1 TBS
Hoi Sin sauce - 1/2 cupSoy sauce - 2 TBS
Kojujyan (Korean chili paste) - 2 TBS
Brown sugar or Honey - 2 TBS
Salt & Pepper - 1 tsp each
- Tenderize pork chops by using meat tenderizer or rolling pin or punching down.
- Cut onion into slices.
- Grate garlic and ginger. Squeeze out the juice in a bowl. Keep the pieces.
- In a ziplock bag, put pork, onion garlic/ginger, and marinade. Let it sit in the fridge for at least an hour.
|Before and after marinade (I split into two bags)|
- On a grill or frying pan, heat 2 TBS of oil. When it's hot, fry pork chops and onion slices. Fry for 3-4 minutes on medium heat. Don't discard ziplock bag with marinade.
- Turn the meat and cook for another 3 minutes.
- Meanwhile, combine 1/3 cup of water with the ziplock where pork was in. Pour the water mixture into the meat and 'steam' cook the pork chop for another 3-4 minutes, cover with lid or aluminum foil. Turn occasionally.
- Take out the meat and let it sit for 5 minutes before cutting. Pour the sauce on top of sliced pork chops.
- We had the pork chop with rice, miso soup and thin sliced cabbage salad & kimchee.
