Hong Kong Style Baked Pork Chop Spaghetti

HK Style Baked Pork Chop SpaghettiI think this is quickly becoming one of my signature dishes (well, at least in my mind it is). A play on the fast-food Hong Kong style cha-charn tang baked pork chop rice for the plebs is my own revamped “classier” version of the dish for the bourgeois. Mind you, this dish does take a longer time to prepare and requires more ingredients than the usual mentions on this blog.

INGREDIENTS (serves 3):

  • 3 pork chops with bone-in (cut ~1.5 cm thick)
  • Bunch of chopped fresh rosemary
  • Salt and white pepper, to season
  • 1/2 pack of spaghetti
  • 1 tablespoon of worcester sauce
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 1 cup of ketchup
  • 1 cup beef broth
  • 1-2 tomatoes, sliced into wedges
  • 1 brown onion, sliced into wedges

METHOD:

1) Wash and pat dry pork chops with paper towels. Marinade the chops with white pepper, salt, and the chopped rosemary.

2) Boil pot of water and add some salt in. Add in pasta and cook al dente (~10 minutes; read package instruction to be precise). Drain in colander then transfer to oven proof baking dish (I love using my pink Le Creuset stoneware). In the meantime, preheat the oven to 200 degrees celsius.
