Pinoy Pork Chop (Pork Steak)
Pinoy pork chops steak can be prepared in a variety of ways. This recipe uses a sauce similar to Bistek Tagalog. Simple pork chops are usually cooked by simply frying or grilling. Such preparations, however, can sometimes make a dish boring. Rather than using these basic, traditional methods, we have taken the extra steps in making Bistek tagalog. But we have used a traditional pork chop cut of meat. This method gives the chops additional rich flavor and also provides extra sauce for the rice. Gone are the mundane fried pork chops on the weekend! My weekend lunch became perfect with a touch of Filipino cooking.
A health tip is to make sure you cut the excess fat and skin off the pork before marinating.
