Five Star Pork

Five Spice Pork

We were supposed to have filets for dinner, but the wrong thing made it out of the deep freeze.  This was one of those “ooops” that turned into “yum”.  I would certainly spice this up more, but this is the right amount of “kick” for entertaining.

3 boneless thick cut pork chops
2 cups chicken broth
Salt and pepper to taste
2 TB five spice chinese power
2 TB soy sauce
2 TB red pepper flakes
3 cloves of garlic, slightly smashed
8 oz pinneaple juice
1/2 cup pinneapple chunks
3 green onions, chopped, plus additional for garnish
Cooked jasmine rice

1. In a dutch oven, combine the pork and chicken broth. Add salt and pepper and braise for approximately 90 minutes.
2. Pull the pork apart using two forks.
3. To the pork add chinese powder, soy sauce, red pepper flakes, garlic and juice. Cook uncovered, in low/med heat for 10 more minutes.
4. Add pinneaple chunks and green onions. Cook for an additional 5 minutes.
5. Serve over jasmine rice, garnish with green onions.
