Chinese five spice pork chops

    1 hour 20 min

    Succulent pan-fried pork chops marinated in a Chinese five spice marinade with a sweet and salty edge. You can find Chinese five-spice powder in any large supermarket. It's simply a mixture of cinnamon, fennel, aniseed, cloves and ginger. It's so fragrant and works really well with pork.

    1. Into a large resealable plastic food bag, add the soy sauce, garlic, sugar, white wine, and five-spice powder. Place chops into the bag, and close the seal tightly. Carefully massage the marinade into chops, coating well. Refrigerate at least 1 hour, turning the bag over every so often.
    2. In a large frying pan, heat enough vegetable oil to cover the bottom of the pan. Remove chops from resealable bag without wiping off marinade. Lightly sprinkle cornflour on both sides of the chops.
    3. Carefully add chops to frying pan; cook, turning once, until golden brown on both sides and cooked through.
