  • Hainanese Pork Chop : Singapore Old School Version

I learnt to make Hainanese Pork Chop from my father-in-law. My family love a delicious pork chop which is tender on the inside and crusty outside. This traditional Hainanese pork chop is coated with cream cracker crumbs. Then it is deep fried.

I learn this from my late father-in-law who was a talented cook. He could cook a ten-course meal for one hundred guests at a wedding banquet by himself.

I was newly married, too young then to want to learn cooking from him. Now I am trying to remember what he taught me and compile his recipes into a book for our younger generations.

I also added cubed cucumber and tomatoes into the sauce besides the onion,. For my son, I would add fries as a meal by itself.

 

自制新加坡海南炸猪扒

我不时在家里制作海南炸猪扒,包裹苏打饼干碎的炸豬扒, 皮肉不分离, 香脆而不油腻。。。。。。

这是新加坡式海南炸猪扒, 我海南乡下的家人都不曾吃过。炸猪扒传统做法都用面包糠,但是用苏打饼干来代替,会有意想不到的口感。猪扒裹上苏打饼干碎,炸出来更酥脆,也更香。

把切成一指厚的肉片,用刀背拍打猪扒, 将两面的肉筋都打散,使猪扒更容易入味。

有一个特制的锤子砸,锤子的头不是平的,而是带着一排排四方棱。这样不仅可以把肉砸烂,而且不会碎,一块拳头大的肉片最后砸出来和巴掌一般大小。然后腌制最少一个小时后再沾鸡蛋涂均匀,最后裹上苏打饼干碎下油锅,外酥里嫩、咸淡适中。

这道菜关键于火候的掌握,外表金黄为最佳。
