Salt and Pepper Pork Chops


I was surprised when this recipe moved into the top ten, but the recipe apparently has cross-cultural appeal. It has slowly elbowed the competition out of the way and moved into the charmed circle. This is a classic Chinese dish and I hope you won't let the title put you off. The salty flavor comes from soy sauce and you can use a low-sodium variety if you are watching your salt intake. This is a quick and easy dish that I hope soon makes it to your table. I think your family will love these chops. There is nothing here not to like.
