lares flag
Once again, I am reposting a favorite recipe of ours.  This is something I cook quite often, and I hope you will like it as well as we do.
Chuletas Fritas en Ajo (Garlic Fried Pork Chops)
Serves: 4-6
 
Adapted from "A Taste of Puerto Rico: Traditional and New Dishes from the Puerto Rican Community"
Ingredients
  • 8-10 garlic cloves, peeled
  • 1 Tbsp GOYA® Adobo con Pimiento (with Pepper)
  • ½ c olive oil
  • white vinegar to taste
  • 4-6 pork chops
  • 2-3 c vegetable oil
Instructions
  1. In a mortar, crush the garlic. Yes, in a mortar. It just won't be the same if you use a food processor.
  2. Add the adobo, olive oil, and vinegar; mix well.
  3. Pour mixture over pork chops; marinate in refrigerator from 30 minues to overnight.
  4. Heat the vegetable oil in a skillet.
  5. Fry chops with garlic until golden brown. Add as many additional garlic cloves as you like. I add at least 8 more.
 
You can serve this with anything you like, but I serve it with Arroz Amarillo (Yellow Rice) and Tostones con Mojito de Ajo (Twice-Fried Plantains with Garlic Sauce).  Dee-lish!
