Red-Cooked Pork Chops

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by noway

"Red" refers to a Chinese style of cooking where the food is cooked with soy sauce (the chops will turn red). Meat must marinate 2-4 hours. The original recipe called for 2 Tbsp minced onion in the marinade as well, but I leave them out as I don't like onions.

Very delicious Hong Shao recipe- I used thin cut pork chops and marinated them overnight- the flavor soaked through completely. If you have it, dark soy sauce/mushroom flavored soy sauce will add an extra dimension to the marinade, as will star anise. I will be making this again as it is easy to prepare, huge on flavor. :)
