Soy Sauce Pork Chops
Hello everyone! First of all, I would like to thank all of our new readers. This week, Veggie Girl and I were so happy to see new people liking us on Facebook. Special shout-out to all of you who liked us this week, which ever part of this beautiful earth you are from.
Today, I would like to share with you a pork chop recipe I inherited from my mom, and it is one of my "go to" recipes when I want something quick and simple.
Yesterday, I decided to cook this for my mother-in-law, who is spending the weekend with us. To my delight, she loved it and even asked for the recipe. Well, if she liked it that much, it must be worth sharing. So here it is.
4 pork chops
1/2 cup soy sauce
4 tablespoons all purpose flour
4 tablespoons brown sugar
about 1/3 cup cooking oil
1. Marinate the pork chops in soy sauce for about 20-30 minutes on each side.
2. Combine flour and brown sugar on a plate or a shallow bowl.
3. Coat the chops with the flour and brown sugar mixture. Heat up the oil on medium heat.
4. Place the chops in the pan and reduce the heat to low. You don't want the sugar to burn before the chops are cooked. Add oil as necessary. Take note of the nice even browning from the caramelization of the sugar.
Tender, juicy, tasty chops! A perfect balance of salty and sweet. Serve with rice and your favorite veggies on the side. I served it with asparagus, quickly sauteed in butter and salt. Enjoy!
Tip: Do not overcook your asparagus or they will be very stringy and soggy. I like my asparagus cooked, but still with a crisp to it. -GG-
