Filipino Pork Chop Recipe

Pork chop is one of famous Filipino comfort food. Pork is cheaper than beef and is always available in the market.  My mother, makes the best pork chop. She has a simple way of doing it with just salt, pepper and kalamansi juice. These are all the ingredients she need for a delicious fried pork chop. Sometimes she cook it like bistek tagalog, which is pork marinated in soy sauce, kalamansi and ground pepper and serve with marinade sauce and half cooked onion rings.

This dish, can use any cut of meat as long as they are sliced thinly. Here in the US, pork chop cut is sold without fat and skin for health reason. But if you prefer it with fat, you can go to Hispanic and Asian.
