Sweet & Sour Pork Chop



Today is another "no rice" Sunday for us. Too bored of having dishes with brown rice. I want to cook something new but not so tedious. Finally, I made up my mind to cook Western food, the sweet & sour pork chop. I know, the cooking process will mess up my kitchen. What to do? Let it be!

I have no idea which type of pork meat I should use, so I just informed the butcher to cut me some soft lean meat for my pork chop dish. Then, my experiment started...

Sweet & Sour Pork Chop
Serves 2

Ingredients:

380gm of pork chop cutlets
1 small yellow onion, diced horizontally
1/2 yellow capsicum, diced
Canola oil to cook

Seasoning for pork chop cutlets
Sprinkling of salt and pepper

Sauce ingredients
4 tbsp tomato sauce
1 tbsp chili sauce
1 tbsp oyster sauce
1/2 tbsp sugar
1/3 cup of water

Method

1. Marinate pork chop with seasoning for 1 hour.

Tips: Lightly chop the pork cutlets across the top & bottom surfaces with the back of knife.

2. In a non stick pan, fry the marinated pork chop until golden. Drain oil and set aside.

3. Heat 2 tablespoons oil and saute onion until fragrant. Pour in the sauce ingredients. Bring to boil.

4. Return pork chop pieces to the pan and Add capsicum. Cook for 1–2 minutes.

5. Serve the pork chop with stir-fried cauliflower & broccoli and peach slices (from can).
