    1. Make the marinade by mixing together the sugar, salt, soy sauce and cornflour slurry. Mix in the pork chops, let marinate for 20 minutes.
    2. In a small bowl, mix together the water, chicken stock granules, oyster sauce and black soy sauce to make the sauce. Set aside.
    3. Heat a large frying pan with 1 tablespoon oil over high heat. Pan-fry the pork chops until brown on both sides, 3-5 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium and cook until the pork chops are done, 3-5 minutes more. Set aside.
    4. Heat the same frying pan with 1 tablespoon oil over high heat. Stir-fry the garlic and black pepper until fragrant, about 3-4 minutes. Add the onions with 1 teaspoon salt and fry until soft, about 3-4 minutes. Stir in the green pepper and sauce, heat through, 1-2 minutes. Add the cornflour slurry and stir until the sauce is thickened. Turn off the heat and add the honey and pork chops, mix well and serve.
