Making pork chops can be easy and fun. By oven-frying, you can make a thick and crunchy crust on the pork chops similar to a deep-fried dish without it being fatty.
• 2 pork chops
• 1 large egg
• 3 tablespoons soy sauce
• 1 tablespoon water
• 4-6 garlic cloves
• pinch of curry powder
• 2 cups breadcrumbs
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cover baking pan with aluminum foil.
2. Chop up the garlic cloves.
3. Using a whisk, mix together the egg, soy sauce, water, garlic, and curry powder in a large bowl.
4. Put breadcrumbs in a separate bowl.
5. Immerse both sides of the pork chops into the egg and soy sauce mixture.
6. Dip pork chops into breadcrumbs. Make sure crumbs coat each side evenly.
7. Place pork chops on baking pan and bake for 30 minutes. Then turn pork chops over and bake for another 20 minutes, or until the pork chops are not pink. If you have a meat thermometer, check to make sure the pork chops are at around 160 degrees F.

Soy sauce is low in Cholesterol and Saturated Fat. According to Nutrition Data, it is also “a good source of Riboflavin, Vitamin B6, Magnesium and Copper, and a very good source of Protein, Niacin, Iron, Phosphorus and Manganese.” However, soy sauce is high in sodium, so try using soy sauce that is specifically labeled as having less sodium or is low in salt.
