Asian Garlic Pork Chops


Since we’ve been cooking quite a few fusion dishes lately, I thought I would change it up today and work on more of a traditional Japanese dish.  

And by ‘traditional dish’, I mean something my mom makes.  I recall my mom making these amazing Asian Garlic Pork Chops growing up and thought it’d be a great dish to share here on LCA.

So I called her about it and in my mom’s usual response, ‘I think I used this ingredient and did this…’.  And whenever I press her for exact measurements, she says, I don’t know, I just eyeball. 

Not exactly the best lead when you’re trying to write a recipe to share with the whole world!

So after that brief conversation with her, I gave the recipe a shot going off what I remember it tasting like and I think I got pretty close!  So here is LCA’s version of my Mom’s Asian Garlic Pork Chops!  Hope you like it!

The ingredients you would need for this one would be Swerve/Monkfruit, Almond Flour and Japanese sake. 

Here is the sake we normally use for reference.  Everything else you can get on Amazon or a local supermarket.

Now, let’s get started!

Prepping Time 5M

Brine Time (optional) 1H

Cook Time 4M

Total Time 9M

Net Carb/Serv ~1g

Servings 2

Ingredients

Pork Chops

  • 4-6 Thin-Cut Pork Chops
  • 1/8 tsp Salt
  • 1/8 tsp Black Pepper
  • 2 tbsp Almond Flour
  • 1 Stalk Green Onion

Brine

  • 2 Cups Water
  • 1 tbsp Salt (optional brine)

Sauce

Directions

1) Gather all the ingredients.

2) This step is optional, but we highly recommend it to get a super juicy pork.  In a large mixing bowl, add 2 cups of water, 1 tbsp of salt and pork chops.  Brine for 1 hour.   Note – be careful not to over brine, otherwise it will become too salty.

3) Thinly cut green onions and set aside.

4) Grind garlic with a grinder or garlic press and place into mixing bowl.

5) In the mixing bowl, combine butter, Soy Sauce, Japanese sake, Swerve/Monkfruit.  Set aside.

6) Pat pork dry with paper towel.  Lightly sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Sprinkle 1 tbsp of Almond Flour and lightly coat.  Flip and repeat the process.

7) Heat large Teflon frying pan with olive oil on high.  Once the oil starts to smoke, reduce heat to medium and carefully add pork chops.  Cover and cook until golden brown, should take around 1.5 – 2.5 minutes (time will vary with thickness).

8)  Once golden, flip and add garlic soy sauce mix.  Cover and cook for 1 – 2 minutes until done (internal temp should be at least 145F).

9) Transfer to serving plate and top with green onions.  Drizzle any leftover sauce on top.
