Baked Pork Chop with Rice ( 焗豬扒飯 )

I baked this for lunch on Saturday and pretty happy with the outcome.  The ketchup and the melted cheese have made this dish so tasty.  All of us enjoyed it so much.

This dish is more of the dry side.  I guess because I have too much rice. The next time I bake this again, I should make more ketchup sauce and top up with more cheese.
This dish is good for working mum like me.  I can prepare this dish in advance for my boys’ lunch and put them in the fridge.  They just have to lay the pork cutlet on the fried rice and pour the ketchup sauce over it.  Then top up the amount of cheese they like to before putting it to the oven to bake.  The dish will be ready by the time they are out from the bathroom.

As a working mum, I constantly look for dish that’s nutrient and can prepare in advance so that it’s easy for my boys to fix their lunch when they’re back from school.  This will also minimise them from eating out too.

This dish is adapted from Lena’s blog – Frozen Wings.



3 bowls of cooked rice
2 pieces of pork chop, pork cutlet
1 medium sized onion, cut into wedges
1 tomato, cut into widges
2 eggs, lightly beaten
3 tbsps plain flour
1 cup of shredded mozarella cheese
salt and pepper for seasoning the meat
oil for frying

1/2 cup ketchup
1/2 cup of anchovies stock ( or chicken stock )
1tbsp sugar, or to taste
1tbsp soy sauce , or to taste
1tbsp Worcheshire sauce


In a medium bowl, combine all ingredients for the sauce and set aside.

Pat dry the pork chops and season with salt and pepper, leave for 30 mins.

In a large pan, heat up 1 tbsp of oil and pour in 1/2 of the beaten egg. Scramble the eggs until almost cook through, add the rice and stir fry with a spatula. Add in 2 tbsps of beaten egg into the rice , season with some salt. Transfer the rice into a baking dish.

In 2 plates, place flour and the balance of the beaten eggs separately. Pour enough oil into a large frying pan . Dip the pork chop into the beaten egg and then into the flour and fry the pork chop till they are cook through. Drain with paper towels. Cut them into strips and place them onto the baking dish on top of the fried rice.

Lastly, heat up some oil in the pan and cook the onions till they are slightly softened.. Add the tomatoes and , stir and cook till they are softened. Pour in the sauce and let cook for about 2 minutes. Taste and see if more sugar and soy sauce are needed. 

Remove from heat and pour the sauce over the pork chop and fried rice. Scatter with shredded cheese and bake in a preheated oven at 220C for about 15 mins or until cheese is golden brown. ( I  baked them for around 8 minutes till the cheese has all melted. )
