Chinese Pork Chop

I rarely cook pork chop for myself because I don’t particularly like the pounding process to tenderise the meat. It makes my arm sore. Plus the splattered mess made by this, no matter how much I try to reduce it, is still quite a hassle to handle. Nevertheless, if my children love it, i’ll be more than happy to make it for them.

Ingredients for the marinate

  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 Tbs lemon juice
  • 1 Tbs minced garlic

This recipe is good for marinating four pieces of pork chop.

Firstly, place all the ingredients in a bowl and mix them thoroughly. This will be your marinating sauce. Then coat it on the pork chop, ensuring the sauce is coated on each piece completely. Next we let the sauce set in by leaving it in the fridge it for at least two hours.

Afterwards, here comes the fun part, grilling! For this it’s best to use a grilled pan.Set your flame to medium and drizzle a bit of oil on the pan. Then once the oil is hot, grill your pork chops for about 3-4 minutes on each side. Personally, I prefer a my pork chop slightly charred to really bring out that grilled goodness. For this, I just grill it for a little bit longer.
And voila! Just like that, a simple and absolutely mouthwatering dish sure to impress your whole family, I know mine did!

    have you tried covering it with cling wrap, roll it with rolling pin instead of hitting with a mallet?
    or what I do to make it tender is to boil the meat first with its marinated sauce then fry the pork chop.
