"This pork chop recipe has a great flavor using Chinese five-spice powder. If you can find sweet potato powder, use it instead of cornstarch. Serve this with plain white rice and a simple vegetable side."

  1. With a sharp knife, make several small slits near the edges of the pork chops to keep them from curling when fried.
  2. Into a large resealable plastic bag, add the soy sauce, garlic, sugar, white wine, and five-spice powder. Place chops into the bag, and close the seal tightly. Carefully massage the marinade into chops, coating well. Refrigerate at least 1 hour, turning the bag over every so often.
  3. In a large skillet, heat enough vegetable oil to fill the skillet to a depth of about 1/2 inch. Remove chops from resealable bag without wiping off marinade. Lightly sprinkle cornstarch on both sides of the chops.
  4. Carefully add chops to skillet; cook, turning once, until golden brown on both sides and cooked through.

This dish was a huge hit with the hubby. The trick to this dish is 1)Use thin sliced pork chops, 2) make little slits on both sides, and 3) marinate for at least 3-4 hours. I didn't use as much ...

A great, authentic recipe that is delicious even with estimated proportions + common sense (the way I like it). It reminds me of my beloved Taiwanese childhood. DO NOT OMIT THE 5-SPICE: it "ma...

Very easy to make and tasty. I cooked them using a non-stick cooking spray, not oil, so I could save calories.

This was great! I followed the recipe, adding a little white pepper to the marinade. I served with white rice and stir fried baby bok choy. My boyfriend and I loved it!
