Pork Chop ala Bistek

It so happened that the only protein left in our freezer is the pork chop. Immediately my gray matter went on an overdrive to figure out how best to cook them.

Frying is out of the question because I already used that method a few days ago.

I did not feel like baking them. The slices of pork chop were too thin for that procedure.

Ihaw or grill is out of the question because I have no charcoal or uling to grill them with.

The onions decided it for me. Since I have loads of that particular bulb and calamansi in my pantry, I decided to do Pork Chop Ala Bistek.

What is it about the soy-calamansi that titillates the palate? The combination of salty and citrusy plus the sweetness of the caramelized onions is tough to beat.

When I serve this dish to the family, I make sure I have a generous amount of sauce. The piggery loves to slather that rich brown savory liquid all over their cups of piping hot white steamed rice. I also make sure I cook extra carbs for their seconds and thirds haha.

Such a joy to see the family enjoying their meal!

Here is the recipe...


1-kilo pork chop
sliced onions
Ellies Vegetable oil


1. Marinate the pork chop in soy sauce and calamansi in 1 hour
2. Saute the sliced onions in butter till translucent or have caramelized. Set aside.
3. Add Ellie's vegetable oil and sear the pork chops on the same pan. Set aside
4. Pour the soy-calamansi marinade until sauce is reduced.
5. Return the pork chops to the pan and the sauce just to marry the protein with the savory liquid.
6. Transfer to a plate. Garnish with caramelized onions on top
7. Serve hot and paired with piping hot steamed rice
