Hainanese pork chop is such a delicious delicacy! To start off, pound the pork chop with a mallet or the back of your cleaver to tenderise it. Then marinate it for at least an hour, of course if you have time, the longer the better! This process adds so much flavour to the meat.  (**note – only add the baking soda 1 hr before cooking if marinating overnight)
And so they say, “Good things come to those who wait.” Finally, dust the marinated pork chop in flour and apply a generous layer of egg wash to it, to ensure that the crispy coating of soda crackers stick on it. Next just drop it gently into the hot oil and watch the magic happen!
Of course, we can’t leave out the trademark ketchup based sauce with assorted vegetables. Drizzle some of the sauce on the porkchop and let it cut through the greasiness of the deep fried pork. We hate to say it AGAIN, but get ready another bowl of rice!
