This is a different way to prepare pork chops, fried and served with a Thai-style sauce and garnishes.



Serves: 4 

  • 1/4 cup (30g) plain flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 4 boneless pork chops, about 2cm thick
  • 1/3 cup chicken stock
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup chopped spring onion
  • 1/4 cup sliced red capsicum
  • 1/4 cup coarsely chopped dry roasted peanuts
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh coriander


Preparation:7min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:17min 

  1. On a plate, combine the flour, cumin, cayenne pepper and 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Stir to distribute the spices. Coat the pork chops with the flour mixture and shake off any excess.
  2. Heat the oil in a large frypan over medium-high heat. Place the pork chops in the hot frypan and fry for about 4 minutes per side until cooked through.
  3. While the pork chops cook, stir together the chicken stock, coconut milk, peanut butter, honey, ginger and 1/4 teaspoon of salt. Remove the pork chops to a serving platter and keep warm.
  4. Pour the peanut sauce into the frypan. Cook, stirring constantly for 2 minutes or until thickened. Pour peanut sauce over the chops and garnish with spring onion, capsicum, peanuts and coriander.

This recipe just needed a tweak or two. I increased the sauce volume by a third. Added some hot finely chopped red chillies in the garnish and a squirt of lime over the whole lot. Excellent ! Will be going into my collection of "go to" dinners. - 21 Jul 2012
