Ingredients for Kan Kan Pork Chop:

1 Kan Kan pork chopvegetable oil, as neededwhite distilled vinegar, as neededcomplete seasoning, as needed

Method of Preparation:

-If you can not find Kan Kan pork chop, Chef Jodrick says to use a regular pork chop and serve it with pork rinds. Start by marinate the pork chop with vegetable oil, white distilled vinegar and complete seasoning. Let it sit in the fridge for at least two hours.

-Then, transfer the pork to a covered baking pan and cook it in a 325 degree oven for about one hour and 20 minutes.

-Next, let the pork chop cool down, remove it from the pan and let it sit for at least two hours. This will ensure the Kan Kan pork chop does not break, since it will be very tender.

-Lastly, deep fry until it is all nice and crispy.

To Plate:

At the restaurant, they serve the mofongo with a side of pigeon pea rice. Also, known as "Arroz con Gandules." Then, they finish with the Kan Kan pork chop on top. You can garnish with a wedge of lime.
