Ingredients

  • 6 Bone-in pork chops, thin
  • Vegetable oil for pan-frying
  • 1/2 tsp Soy Sauce
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 2 tbsp Cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup Flour
  • 2 Garlic cloves, sliced
  • 1 bunch Spring onion, chopped (green parts only)
  • 1-2 Jalapeño pepper, sliced
  • 1 tsp Sesame oil

Instructions

Seasoning

  1. Season both sides of each pork chop generously with salt and pepper. Rub soy sauce over each and dust cornstarch over them.

  2. Pour the 1/4 cup flour onto a plate and coat pork chops in flour. Set aside.

Pan-frying

  1. Put about 1 Tbsp oil in a large skillet. Fry pork chops over high heat till crisp brown, about 3-4 minutes on each side. You may need to pan-fry them for longer if you have thicker pork chops. 

  2. Place finished pork chops on a plate and dry off residual oil with a paper towel. Set aside.

  3. Use some of the leftover oil in the skillet to stir-fry the garlic cloves, spring onion, and sliced jalapeño pepper. Add 1 tsp sesame oil. Return pork chops to the pan and stir-fry all together for about 30 seconds.
