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.
