Taiwanese Pork Chops

READY IN: 1hr 25mins
Recipe by NorthwestGal

This is a recipe I found on the Safeway website which is a little different than a similar recipe already posted in the database. It offers yet another choice if you're looking for Asian inspiration in preparing pork chops with a Taiwanese flair. Prep time includes 1 hour of marinating time.

I really like five spice, so this was up my alley. I increased the ingrediants for a serving of 6 ( I wanted leftovers for lunch the next day!), and marinated for an hour. I have to say the next time I make these I will let them marinate longer to get more flavor. I did not fry the chops, just a personal preference, but instead baked them. I thought they turned out great! These chops were delicious! Thank you for posting!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. With a sharp knife, make several small slits near the edges of the pork chops to keep them from curling when fried.
  2. Add the soy sauce, garlic, sugar, white wine, and five-spice powder to a 1-gallon zip-lock plastic bag, mix thoroughly. Place chops in the bag, and close the seal tightly. Carefully massage the marinade into chops, coating well. Refrigerate at least 1 hour, turning the bag occasionally to ensure even marinating.
  3. In a large skillet, heat enough vegetable oil to cover the bottom of the skillet. Remove chops from resealable bag without wiping off the marinade. Lightly sprinkle cornstarch on both sides of the chops.
  4. Carefully add chops to skillet; cook over medium heat, turning once, until chops are golden brown on both sides and cooked through.
