Taiwanese Pan-Fried Pork Chops are not your typical deep-fried pork chops. They are lightly coated with sweet potato starch and pan-fried to perfection. The secret is in the marinade. The longer you allow the marinade to soak into the pork chops, more flavorful and juicy the pork chops will be. You can always find this simple yet delicious dish accompanied with rice and soy sauce eggs at a Taiwanese train station. It has truly become a very popular lunch box among business travelers.
