Szechuan Pork Chop

Yvonne’s second dish is Szechuan Pork Chop or more likely as Spice Salt Pork Chop. Yvonne got a great deal from a grocery store which offers buy one get one free pork chop. She made a big platter of Pork Chops.


The Pork Chops were served over Fusilli pasta and fried skewered sweet peppers and steamed brocolli. The drippings from the baking of the Pork Chops made a great sauce for the pasta.


Yvonne also made a sweet potato and yam soup as dessert. I love dessert soup.

Pounding between two layer of plastic is a great way to reduce the messiness.Is there any other way than pounding to tenderize the meat? Pounding might be a challenge for those who live in apartment buidings where noise is an issue.

    Hi BuddingCook, its ok to leave out the Sar Geong Fern, you may replace it with some ground Szechuan Pepper Corns.
