Salt and Pepper Pork Loin Chops Procedures02

Method:
  1. Pound the pork chops with a meat tenderizer or the back of a knife cleaver. Cut into 4-cm / 1½-inch sized pieces. Mix well with marinade. Set aside for about 30 minutes.
  2. Heat oil in a frying pan over medium high heat. Place the pork chops in the pan in one single layer without overlapping each other. Pan fry until both sides are lightly brown and cooked through. A chop stick can poke through easily. Set aside. Cover to keep warm.
  3. Add a little of oil in the same pan and sauté the onion until transcalent. Be sure not to burn them. Push the onion to the sides of the pan. In the middle, add a bit of oil to sauté garlic, shallot and red chilli. Add the five-spice powder and sugar. Toss back the pork chops. Stir to combine. Sprinkle spring onion for garnish. Serve hot. Enjoy!
Notes:
  • If the seeds of red chilli are removed, the pungency will be decreased significantly. The hotness of different chili pepper types varies. Choose the type of chilli that you like, or adjust the quantity to your preference.
  • Five-spice powder is available at Asian grocers.
