Tomato pork chop

“- Children’s favorite dish – Make your own sweet and savoury sauce for your child!”

Cooking dishes with sweet & sour sauce are my forte. It’s loved by anyone, especially the children of its savoury taste, sweet with a little bit of pleasant sourish kind. I love to make this dish as it is simple and yet, flavorsome. I called it as sweet & savoury sauce here, because the
sauce I made here is kinda different from the normal sweet and sour sauce I’ve made. So, call it Sweet & Savoury.

The secret weapon to most of my meaty recipes is the Lea & Perrins’ Worcestershire Sauce. It adds extra flavour to it, and extracts the fullest essence of the dish.

I took another step to make the pork chops taste smoother with better sweetness, I used rock sugar. It gives nice shiny dark color coating to the chops, this makes the chops look more appealing and taste even better.

Ingredients:
6 – 8 slides of pork chop (tenderloin or shoulder butt part), about 1 cm thick
1 tablespoon of light soy sauce

1 tablespoon of Lea & Perrins’ Worcestershire Sauce
2 tablespoon of oil

Sauce:
6 tablespoon of tomato sauce
1 tablespoon of Lea & Perrins’ Worcestershire Sauce
2 tablespoon of water
2 lumps of rock sugar (about size of table tennis ball each)

Method:
1) Place pork chops in a large bowl and season well with light soy sauce and Lea & Perrins’ sauce, for 10 minutes.

2) In a bowl, mix all tomato sauce, Lea & Perrins sauce and water. Stir well. Set aside.

3) Heat oil in a skillet over medium fire, pan fry the pork chops for 5 min each side, or until tenderly cooked. Transfer the chops and set aside.

4) Heat up a wok with low fire, add rock sugar. Stir constantly until dissolved into thick liquid. Add the cooked pork chops and coat well with the dissolved rock sugar.

5) Pour the sauce and mix well with the chops. Stir fry for 3 min. Served.

Tips: The chops should be coated well with the rock sugar. Do not be alarmed by the possible change of color of the rock sugar to dark brown, when it dissolved.
*If you prefer sweeter taste, add sugar (about 2 more tablespoon) into the sauce mixture.
