Mom’s Pork Chop

I didn’t like pork. Don’t ask why… I just didn’t, and it was not because of any belief or anything. It was just undesirable meat choice for me until my mom made us her pork chop for dinner on one of her visits. Now, I’m hooked! And believe it or not, it’s the only way I would eat pork. What can I say, I’ve never knew simple seasonings could make the pork really tasty?

I have been making the pork chop ever since. I even taught my husband how to make the pork chop only once and he is a natural now 😉 Very easy and fast!

Just made it for dinner tonight, and thought about posting it.

This is how we usually make it:

2 pieces of lean pork chop
1- 2 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp or more garlic salt
2 tsp pepper
1 tbsp and 1 tsp butter 1 package of onion gravy

Poke the pork chop with fork all over to tenderize them. Rub with soy  sauce, garlic salt, and pepper. The soy sauce is acting as tenderizer and a  seasoning. Let them marinate for at least 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, make the onion gravy according to the instructions on the package.

Melt 1 tbsp butter in a pan, put in pork chop. Let it fry on medium heat for about 5-6 minutes. It really  depends on the thickness of the pork chop. Put 1 tsp butter on top of them until butter melts before you turn. When butter melts, turn the other side of the pork chop. Cook them through. Flip again if necessary.

I usually flip-flop  and press them several times with my spatula to make sure they are cooked through and through. When the juice runs clear,  remove from heat.

Serve with the onion gravy!

Ps. In the picture above, I served the pork chop with steamed rice and black beans . Click to get the recipe!
