Chuleta kan kan is a Puerto Rican creation consisting of a beautifully cooked pork chop. The pork chop is prepared using the sous vide technique, ensuring even cooking and moisture retention. It is then finished with a "Mohawk" presentation, resembling the flared dress of a can-can dancer. The dish is served with traditional accompaniments such as arroz (rice), habichuelas (beans), and tostones (fried plantains), providing a comforting and flavorful Puerto Rican dining experience.
