After days of great and happy feasting over the CNY, I guess it's really good…

These days I love frying up pork chops. I super love the nostalgic taste that comes with it, which seems to transport me back to my childhood days!
My toddler also love pork chops – be it simple soy sauce and pepper marinade, or more flavourful one like this – she loves them all!

It’s also quite easy to make, though you might need to take note of splattering oil lol.
You would need enough oil to shallow fry it to a nicely browned color. Depending on your wok/pan size, you might need another tbsp more of oil. So do adjust accordingly.
For this easy pork chop, you can choose to shallow fry as it is, or dredge the meat in cornstarch/plain flour before frying. I actually love the floured version better – it’s crispier!

One thing to note is that you should not “overcrowd” the pork while it is frying in the pan. If you run out of space, fry them in batches. The slices of meat should not touch each other while frying.
Or you can also bake, or air fry it!
I made the pork chops an adapted recipe from The Wokking Mum‘s awesome recipe. I first saw that the 5-spice powder was 1 tbsp, and I tried out with the exact amount of it in the recipe, but got choked by the pungent smell of the spice.
So I reduced the amount of the spice and increased a little of the garlic powder.
