Who doesnâ€™t like pork chops? Love them fried or grilled â€“ one of those times I canâ€™t resist pork fat.Â I never really like ‘em breaded; I use different meat parts for sweet-and-sour pork and tonkatsu.
Vietnamese-style served with nuoc mam pha â€“ just another easy yet tasty way of prepping pork chops instead of the usual salt-and-pepper, â€˜tapa-styleâ€™ (salt and pepper plus vinegar and garlic, sometimes a bit of soy sauce and sugar) and pinoy barbecue.
- 3 pork chops
- Â½-1 tbsp sugar
- 1Â½ tbsp fish sauce
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- Marinate pork chops with all ingredients listed above for at least 2 hours.
- Pan-fry or pan-grill until desired doneness. For the boys, it's approximately 7-8 minutes each side.
- Rest for about 5 minutes before serving with Vietnamese dipping sauce.
