Fried pork chops and greens. Is there anything better? Here's our version of Fried Pork Chops with an Asian twist. They're the perfect fusion comfort food!
Recipe type: Pork
Cuisine: Chinese
Serves: 4 chops
You’ll need:
  • 4 pork shoulder chops about ¾ inch thick, washed and pat dry
  • 2 cups oil for frying
For the marinade:
  • ¼ teaspoon five spice powder
  • ¼ teaspoon granulated garlic
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Hoisin sauce
  • ½ teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon shaoxing wine
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
For the flour mixture:
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ground white pepper
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  1. Place pork chops in a bowl, add all of the marinade ingredients, and mix well. The cornstarch should provide some body to the marinating liquid so the flavors stick to the chops. Set aside for at least 1 hour.
  2. Heat the oil in a large cast iron pan to 350 degrees F. Make the dredge by combining the flour, pepper (both kinds), and salt in a shallow bowl. Dredge each pork chop with the flour mixture. Place the pork chops in the oil 2 at a time to fry for about 4 minutes on each side or until crispy and golden brown. Place on paper towels to drain. Serve with greens and iced tea!
