Spicy Baked Pork Loin Chops01

I love spicy food and tomato, yet never thought about combining these two things together until I came across a Chinese food magazine that was printed in the good old days (1980’s). It enticed me to try. The first time I put this spicy baked pork chops on our dining table, my daughter finished the most. Since then she asks me to make her this dish every now and then. She always starts with something like this, “Mom, you haven’t made spicy baked pork loin chops for a long time.” Actually, it’s just a few weeks ago, she did have one. Hmm….

  • Just brown the pork chops in a frying pan as they will be cooked through in oven.
  • You may skip peeling tomato skins.
  • Thick pork loin chops is preferably used to get the best results.
  • A ceramic baking tray is good to retain moist as a result that the pork meat will be juicier.
  • If you’re in a rush, you can pan-fry the pork chops right away after spreading the marinade on them.
