Airfried Taiwanese Pork Chops

I love these that usually come in bento sets sold in Taipei, they are usually paired with a braised egg, pickles or fried cabbage to make a complete meal. So this is my attempt at making a more healthier version that is not deep fried in oil.



  • 2 pieces of pork chops – not too thick
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1/2 tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp white pepper
  • 1 1/2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1/2 tbsp Shaoxing wine
  • 1/4 tsp five spice powder
  • 2 – 3 tbsp potato starch & corn starch


  1. Cut about 3-4 slits on the pork chop to prevent curling when frying
  2. Pound the meat until about 1/4″ thick
  3. Smash garlic cloves and add all seasoning into bag and marinate the pork shop for 30 mins to overnight
  4. Remove meat drain and coat meat with the starch and shake off excess
  5. Place in airfryer basket and airfry at 200 for 13 mins  – flipping the meat at 7 min.
  6. Remove and cool then cut into strips and serve with rice
