San Francisco Pork Chops

San Francisco Pork Chops

 

Such a simple recipe but so delicious. Boneless pork chops are cooked in a teriyaki sauce and then served over egg noodles. I picked this recipe up many years ago but have no idea why it is called San Francisco Pork Chops. All I do know that it is a great way to serve them.

  • 4 boneless pork chops
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed

  • For the sauce
  • 1 tbsp cornflour/cornstarch
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 1 tbsp olive oil

  1. Method
  2. First make the sauce. Mix the cornflour/cornstarch and water together in a bowl. Add the olive oil, sherry, soy sauce and sugar. Whisk until the sugar has dissolved and then set to one side.

  3. Trim any fat from the chops. Heat the oil in a frying pan/skillet. Add the chops and brown on both sides over a medium heat, about four minutes. Remove the chops and set to one side.

  4. Turn the heat down to low and add a little more oil if necessary. Then add the garlic and cook for 1 minute, being careful not to burn it.

  5. Return the chops to the pan and then pour in the sauce. Bring the sauce to the boil and then lower the heat, cover the pan and let it gently simmer for 30 minutes. Turn the chops halfway through cooking.
