  • 2 1/2 lbs. pork chop
  • 1 piece yellow onion
  • 3/4 cups soy sauce
  • 1 piece lemon
  • 4 cloves garlic chopped
  • 3 tablespoons cooking oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 4 cups beef broth


  • Place pork chops in a resealable bag. Pour soy sauce into the bag and squeeze-in lemon. Blend all ingredients. Seal the bag and marinate for at least one hour.
  • Drain the excess marinade. Set it aside.
  • Heat 1 tablespoon oil on a pan or use cooking oil spray. Pan-fry marinated pork chops for 1 ½ minutes per side. Remove pork chops from the pan. Set aside.
  • Add 3 tablespoons cooking oil on the same pan. Saute garlic and half of the onions once the oil starts to get hot.
  • Once onion softens, pour beef broth and pour the remaining marinade. Let boil.
  • Put pork chops back into the pan. Cover and cook in medium heat for 20 minutes. Note: add more broth as necessary.
  • Turn the pork chops over. Cover and cook in medium heat for 18 minutes.
  • Season with sugar and ground black pepper. Add remaining onions. Cook for 8 minutes.
