.Guys, you seriously need to give me a pat on the back! If you’ve been following Kawaling Pinoy for a while, you know I like to cook Chinese restaurant favorites at home. I think I’ve done a pretty swell job of copycatting these dishes and re-creating their unique flavors at home.
But these salt and pepper pork chops, my friends, I hit the bull right in the eye! I was ready to savor for lunch the batch I made today when G walked in from his Jujitsu class and said, “You ordered delivery?” Oh, la la, music to my ears.
I’ve tried numerous times in the past to crack the code on salt and pepper pork chops but always unsuccessfully. My many attempts were either too dry, not crispy enough, lacking in flavor or all of the above. However, last weekend I made Singapore-style coffee ribs, took one bite test A.K.A one big bone and had an AHA moment. I realized the freshly fried pork ribs had the same texture as the pork chops I’ve wanted to replicate for some time.
I rushed to the store to pick up a couple of pounds of pork chops and in an hour, I was moon-walking in the kitchen with uncontained glee. Woot hoot! Tender meat, crispy coating, full flavor, my salt and pepper pork chops came out just like what you’ll find at your favorite Chinese restaurant!
