Vietnamese Roast Pork Chops

I made this easy and super delicious Vietnamese pork chop I got the inspiration from Xiao Yen Recipes, a wonderful blog filled with yummy eats. Oh and we had a great time at the children's museum if its been a while since you visited one grab a kid and have a good time!


Adapted from Xiao Yen Recipes
  • two large pork chops
  • 4 large tablespoon of frozen lemon grass and chili mix, from Asian store, I struggle to get good quality fresh but the original uses this
  • 1/2 a red onion sliced
  • 4 cloves of chopped garlic 
  • 4 tablespoon of soy sauce
  • one tablespoon sugar
  • 2 tablespoon of fish sauce
  • some oil

  1. combine all the ingredients and marinate for a few hours (better overnight but I wasn't that organized he he)
  2. add heavy bottomed pan, I used Le Creuset and fry onion and brown pork chops on each side
  3. then add the rest of ingredients back and bake at 350 for 40 minutes
Serve with Jasmine rice and steamed vegetables, this one is a keeper its so easy to make and packed with flavor. 

What's your favorite new recipe you have made lately, feel free to link for me to try them!!

Oh and I am sending this for Two for Tuesdays - REAL FOOD

  15. Hi Rebecca. Glad you tried the recipe and featured it on your post :) Many readers emailed and asked where and what is lemongrass when I posted the recipe. I didn't realize how difficult it is to buy it!

    Lemongrass is the essential ingredient in making Vietnamese porkchops so I'm glad you were able to find the frozen ones.

  16. I served a family favorite on Friday evening ... Chicken curry as it was prepared by our cook in Kenya to friends we had met .. in Kenya. Food creates memories but also brings them back!
