"My mother is famous for this recipe! It sounds like a weird combo of flavors but it is ohhhh so good! You can also bake them if you do not have a deep-fryer, but you won't get the same crunchiness."

  1. In a shallow dish, stir together the garlic, cinnamon and soy sauce. Place the pork chops in the mixture, and marinate for 10 to 15 minutes.
  2. Heat oil in a deep-fryer to 365 degrees F (185 degrees C).
  3. Fry pork chops in the hot oil until the juices run clear and they are crispy on the outside. This will only take about 2 minutes.


  • Alternate cooking method
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Place chops into a shallow baking dish after marinating. Bake for 20 minutes, or to your desired degree of doneness.

These had a good texture. We thought the cinnamon was a strange favor on them.

I HATED PORK CHOPS! However, these are exceptional! I doubled garlic and cinnamon as suggested by a previous reviewer, marinated for 2 hours, and baked as directed. I AM A PORK CHOP LOVER NOW!

These were so yummy. I opted to bake these in the oven at 350 for about 40 minutes. I also poured the leftover marinade over the pork chops in the baking dish which allowed us to have a sauce....
