    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.

    Agree..added whole tin of coconut milk to the recipe (as a bit gluggy to me) + 1/2 tsp hot chilli flakes & big squeeze of lemon (on rice with fresh beans...!) Very nice )  -  27 Apr 2014


    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


    We loved this recipe ~ instead of using pork chops, we used pork tenderloin which we marinated with olive oil, cumin, ginger, cayenne and garlic then grilled the whole tenderloin and served it with the peanut sauce over rice. Delicious !!!  -  12 Nov 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
