Coffee Pork Chop

Coffee pork chop is so different from sweet and sour pork chop.  I think it can only be found in Singapore....and maybe Malaysia.  I found a recipe from the Meatman website and can't wait to give a try.  However, the recipe calls from instant coffee which I don't have.  I don't buy instant coffee as I find them unhealthy.  I only have coffee powder.  Using my creativity, I modified the recipe by using coffee powder instead of instant coffee.  I have posted two recipes in this blog so that you can compare or try different recipes.
