Ingredients

  • 4 (3/4 inch) thick bone-in pork chops

  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce

  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic

  • 1 tablespoon sugar

  • ½ tablespoon white wine

  • ½ tablespoon Chinese five-spice powder

  • vegetable oil

  • vegetable oil for frying

  • cornstarch

Directions

  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.
