  • 6 center cut pork loin rib chops, bone-in and about 1/2-inch thick
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup calamansi juice
  • 4 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
  • canola oil


  • Rinse the pork chops and pat dry. Season with pepper to taste.
  • In a bowl, combine soy sauce, calamansi juice, and garlic.
  • Add pork chops, massaging marinade onto meat. Cover with film (or transfer into a resealable bag) and marinate in refrigerator for at least 30 minutes or up to 2 hours. Drain pork chops well, discarding marinade.
  • In a pan over medium-high heat, heat oil until hot but not smoking.
  • Add pork chops and pan-fry for about 2 to 3 minutes or until nicely seared. Turn to the other side and continue to cook for another 1 to 2 minutes or until nicely seared and a thermometer in the center reads 145 F.
  • Remove from pan and let rest for about 2 to 3 minutes before slicing.
