HK Style Baked Pork Chop Over Rice

Growing up as a kid, my dad would  make this dish for me all the time.  Traditional Hong Kong baked pork chop over rice calls for ketchup, but for our family recipe, my dad likes the taste of tomato sauce because the ketchup sauce tasted sugary to him so he prefers to have control over how sweetness of the tomato base sauce.  With that said, its been a while since I had HK style pork chop over rice so I made some over the weekend and wanted to share it with those who are looking for a nice and savory dish that in all honesty takes a little bit of effort but it’s well worth it!
