Hainanese Pork Chop is one of the East meets West dishes that is commonly seen in Asia. Pork chop is coated with crumbs from cream crackers and served with sweet and sour gravy and air-fried potatoes wedges.
Use the plastic wrap to cover the pork chop and then use meat mallet (I used pestle) to gently pound the meat into 1/2-inch thickness. This will also help to tenderize the meat. Season both sides with salt and freshly ground pepper
Marinade the pork chops with the marinade ingredients overnight (if you have the time), otherwise at least for 1 hour if you are pressing for time
Cooking the pork chop:
Preheat oil for deep-frying. Place cornstarch in one shallow platter, the beaten eggs in another shallow platter and cream crackers crumbs in another shallow platter. Coat the pork chop in cornstarch first and then dredge in beaten egg and finally coat with crackers crumbs and fry until golden brown over medium heat, about 2 minutes on each side. Repeat with the rest of the pork chop. Keep them warm in the oven while making the gravy
Peeled the potatoes and quarter them. Dab them dry with a paper towel and then drizzle some cooking oil to coat the potatoes. Place in the air-fryer (do not overcrowd) and cook at 400 F for 10-15 minutes or until the potatoes are golden brown and cooked through.
Preparing the gravy:
Mix all the sauces ingredients for gravy in a mixing bowl. Use a skillet or medium size saucepan. Preheat with 1 Tbsp of cooking oil. Add in onion and saute until they are fragrant and tender, about 3 minutes. Add the green peas and cook for about 1 minute. Pour in the sauce followed by tomatoes. You can prepare ahead up to this point.
When ready to serve, bring to a boil and then give the cornstarch mixture a stir and then pour into the sauce. Stir and cook until it is thickened.
Slice the pork chops into strips. Place the pork chop on a serving platter. Spoon the sauce over the pork chop along with the onion and green peas. Served with air-fried potatoes on the side and some rice if you wish. Serve immediately
