Pork chops are fast becoming something of a regular at the Yum Dim Sum residence. It’s kind of that happy halfway house between samey old chicken and steak. I find pork chops are amazingly good at soaking up any kind of flavour you add to them, they also cook just fine without much tending to. So much like chicken you can flavour as you like and have a quick and easy meal!
Chilli Garlic Pork
- 6 pork chops (cook in bulk and freeze some for later)
- 2tbsp chilli sauce (we used Linghams)
- 4 cloves of crushed garlic
- 1tbsp grated ginger
- 2tbsp soy sauce
- 1tbsp sesame oil
- 1tbsp rice wine
And in lovely lazy marinating fashion, all you’ve got to do now is put your pork chops in a bowl with all those ingredients, give it a mix and leave it over night. Easy peasy!
I fried the chops in a medium-hot pan with a little more sesame oil, 5 minutes each side. I then stir fried some pak choi in the juices and served over a bed of sticky, white rice. This pork is sweet and spicy and super satisfying. Eat with chop sticks and wash down with a hot cup of jasmine tea. That saves you a trip to the Chinese!
