Citrus Soy Pork Chops with Onions and Peppers (Filipino Pork Bistek)

My mom made this super tasty and simple recipe for Dane and I while we were staying over my parents’ house, waiting for escrow on our new home. Well we finally moved in, and this is the first homemade recipe in my kitchen! This traditional Filipino recipe combines the savory flavor of soy sauce with the bright, tart flavor of citrus….soooo yummy. Marinating and slow cooking the onions in the sauce soaks up so much flavor as well. My mom adds sweet peppers as well which adds more flavor and color. I love to pair mine with nutritious roasted cauliflower!
