This recipe is from Auntie Yvonne. She makes this her specialty at family gatherings and we all love it! The pork chops go well served with cucumber slices and iceberg lettuce over fragrant jasmine rice!! The dipping sauce is the spicy sweet sauce called nuoc cham used with the vietnamese crispy spring rolls (cha gio).
