San Francisco Pork Chops or Chicken Breasts

This is my daughter's absolute favorite dish! She could eat it every other day of the week and always requests it for her birthday. And it's easy! I serve it with rice.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Lightly brown pork chops in a small amount of oil.
  2. Remove chops from pan and add garlic, soy sauce, brown sugar and 1 cup of the chicken broth. Stir to mix and return chops to pan and cover.
  3. Simmer for a few minutes until the chops are done (15-20 minutes or so).
  4. Remove meat again (or move to the side of the skillet) and add remaining broth which has been mixed with cornstarch. Bring to a boil to thicken and return meat to the pan, coating it well.
  5. Serve with rice.

So this was pretty good, and very easy to make! I did this with chicken, which turned out great, and it is easy to see why the sauce would also work well with pork chops. Even my picky DH enjoyed this recipe, and he can be pretty critical. Thanks for the great recipe! We will make this again and again!

Made for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup (Feb '08 - Jan '09). We liked this but thought it was a bit too salty even though I used a low sodium soy sauce. Next time I'll use 1 cup chicken broth and 1/2 cup water to cut down on the saltiness. Other than that, it was good and the pork chops were very moist (something I usually have issues with) and it makes a great weeknight meal. Thanks for posting this ZeeCooks.

This was a very nice dish, made with thin sliced pork chops and they didn't get dry.
