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