PORK PORK PORK! dELICIOUS SOY SAUCE PORK! tHIS RECIPE IS A FAVORITE AT MY HOUSE.
My Mother-in-Law is a wonderful lady who is an excellent cook. She has shown me many recipes, and this one is everyone in my houses’ favorite. Marinated soy sauce pork. It’s easy to make, it only takes a few ingredients, and can be made extremely inexpensively if you can catch a sale on pork. You can use bone-in or country-style pork.
- Pork – Approximately 1 pork chop per family member or equivalent in “country-style” pork. This recipe is for 4 pork chops cut off of their bones.
- Light soy sauce (1/2 cup)
- Dark Soy sauce (1/2 cup)
- Ginger root, sliced in chunks (to taste)
- Sugar (1/2 Tablespoon)
- Garlic powder (1 Tablespoon)
- Salt (to taste)
- Pepper (to taste)
- Corn starch (enough to coat pork)
- Canola oil (enough to coat pan)
- Cut the pork off of the bone, cut off the large pieces of fat
- Cut pork into smaller chunks, approximately 1″x2″s
- Tenderize the pork with a mallet or the dull side of a knife
- Put the pork into a bowl and mix in both soy sauces, ginger, sugar, garlic powder, salt, and pepper.
- Mix well until all of the pork is coated
- Put in the cornstarch, and mix well until all of the pork is coated
- Heat up the oil in your pan and cook the pork on medium heat until both sides are a darker brown, approximately 4 minutes per side. Discard ginger, and enjoy!
At my house we usually have this with plain white rice made with the rice cooker and either garlic green beans or salad. This is a yummy and filling dinner! I suggest making extra so you can have it again another day. It microwaves well.
