Steak doesn't have to be an expensive occasion. Japanese "tonteki" pork steak is served in a tangy Japanese sauce and topped with crispy fried garlic. Delicious with rice and shredded cabbage, this dish is quick, simple and easy on the wallet!
what you'll need:
» pork chops (boneless)
» garlic cloves
» shredded cabbage
» Worcestershire sauce
» soy sauce
Prepare the pork
Sprinkle the pork chops with salt and pepper on both sides and make cuts in the fat to prevent curling.
Fry sliced garlic
Cut garlic into thin slices. Heat a frying pan on medium low and add oil. Fry the garlic slices until golden and crispy.
Set garlic aside
Transfer the crispy garlic chips to a sheet of kitchen paper to absorb the excess oil.
Fry the pork
Increase the heat to medium and add the pork to the pan. Fry in the garlic infused oil with the lid on for 3 minutes.
Flip the pork
Flip and fry on the other side with the lid on for 3 minutes (or until cooked through).
Transfer the cooked pork chops to a plate and cover with foil. Allow to rest until serving time.
In the same pan, add Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, mirin, honey and butter. Lower heat and simmer until thickened.
Cut the pork chops into slices so that they're easy to eat with chopsticks.
Drizzle the pork chops with the sauce and top with garlic chips. Serve with shredded cabbage and rice.
