Cantonese Pork Chops
6 loin pork chops
1 can apricot halves, drain & reserve juice
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 clove garlic, crushed
1/2 teaspoon powdered ginger
1-1/2 cups diagonally sliced celery
1 onion, finely sliced
Salt and pepper
Hot cooked rice
Dry the chops. Heat a covered fryer over medium heat. Remove cover and brown the chops well on both sides. Pour off any excess fat.
In another bowl, combine apricot juice, soy sauce, garlic and ginger. Add to the chops, cover and reduce heat to a low setting. Simmer for 25 minutes, or until chops are tender.
Add celery and onions; cover again and simmer for five minutes more, or until celery is just tender.
Just before serving, add apricots and cook until heated through. Season sauce to taste and serve with hot cooked rice. Enjoy!
