By author Dish Ditty


  • 1 cup Light Soy Sauce
  • 1/2 cup Sherry
  • 2 tablespoons Rice Wine Vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons Sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Garlic Powder
  • 6-8 Pork Chops (Bone in or Boneless, not too thick)
  • 1/2-1 1/2 cup Vegetable Oil (as needed)
  • 1-2 cup Flour


Step 1
Marinade Pork
In large bowl, combine soy sauce, sherry, rice wine vinegar, sugar, and garlic powder. Add pork chops. Cover and refrigerate for at least one hour (up to 2 days).
Step 2
Place oil in pan and heat to 370 degrees
In a large chicken fryer pan, add about 1/4 - 1/2 inch of vegetable oil. Heat on medium high until temperature is between 365 and 375 degrees. Maintain the heat at this temperature.
Step 3
Put flour in bowl
In a large bowl place the flour.
Step 4
Drain pork
Drip drain the pork chops...
Step 5
Dredge in flour
... and dredge them in the flour.

** For best results, place on a plate with wax paper between each and refrigerate for 1 hour. I never have time to do this and they turn out nice, but if you take this extra step, the flour will stick to the chops better and you will have less of the flour/batter come off during frying/draining (you can see some of that in the picture since I didn't take my own advice).
Step 6
Add to hot oil
Add to the hot oil, being sure not to over crowd. Cook the pork chops in batches.
Step 7
Flip when browned
When brown, flip and cook the other side.
Step 8
Drain on paper towel
Rotate if needed and remove from oil when cooked (internal temperature of pork is 145 degrees) and drain on paper towels.

I love love love these pork chops. They have so much flavor and since they are marinated and then fried, they stay super moist and don’t dry out like other pork chops.

Ok, I know, they aren’t the healthiest of recipes I have here on this site, but I never said this was a health food site. If you want to reduce the fat, you can try cooking them in a pan with a cooking spray like Pam, but you’ll need to be generous and you won’t get the same flavor or texture from the flour coating.

Now that you know this recipe exists, you need to run out and get cooking!
