My next “New Thing” is inspired by Diana Henry’s recipe for Spiced Pork Chops with Ginger and Mango Relish except I only make the pork chops and serve them with fresh mango.
The marinade is simple:
2 Tablespoons peanut oil
Juice of 3 limes
2 red chiles, seeded and chopped (I used dried flakes)
2 garlic cloves, crushed
3/4 inch piece of ginger root, peeled and grated
I marinated the chops in the refrigerator while I went to Pilates class and came home to cook them for an easy weeknight supper. I quickly seared them in a skillet, then finished them in a 400 degree oven while making the glaze in the skillet with the remaining marinade.
The marinade cooks into a glaze that is delicious on the chops. I served with coconut milk rice pilaf (a previous post of a “new thing”) although you can’t see it in the picture!
I didn’t use any new ingredients – just a delicious recipe using ingredients you probably have in your pantry.
