A nod to adobo, juicy pork chops get browned and then cooked gently in a fragrant soy-vinegar marinade until fall-off-the-bone tender in this mouthwatering dish made complete with fried eggs and rice.



  1. Cook the rice as the label directs, adding the minced garlic and 1 bay leaf to the water.
  2. Meanwhile, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Season the pork chops generously with salt and pepper, add to the pan and cook until browned and just cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Remove to a plate.
  3. Add the smashed garlic and onion to the skillet and cook, stirring, until the onion is softened, about 5 minutes. Add the soy sauce, brown sugar, vinegar, 1/2 teaspoon pepper, remaining 2 bay leaves and 1 1/2 cups water. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to a simmer and cook until slightly thickened, 8 to 10 minutes. Return the pork chops and any juices to the skillet and warm through, 1 to 2 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, in a separate large nonstick skillet, heat the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium-high heat. Crack in the eggs and cook until the whites are set, 3 to 4 minutes. Season with salt.
  5. Discard the bay leaves from the rice and sauce. Divide the rice among plates. Add the pork chops and sauce, then top each serving with a fried egg. Sprinkle with the scallions and pepper.
