Pork Loin Chops with minted yoghurt
On reflection, I don’t think I cook enough pork in my home. Not only is it as versatile as chicken, but it’s the cheapest on the market. There are so many ways with pork; from roasts to grills, stir fry’s and stews. No matter what your preference, they’re all delicious! This specific recipe was given to me by a friend and because I love pork, I decided to give it a try. The flavours are fresh; the elements are simple store cupboard ingredients and not forgetting that the recipe is so quick and easy. Thank you Marion!
For this recipe you will need:
2 Pork loin chops
5ml olive oil
30ml ground cumin
1T crushed or grated fresh ginger
small bunch of fresh mint, roughly chopped
500ml plain or Greek yoghurt
Sear pork chops in hot oil. Add a splash of water if it sticks to the bottom of the pan. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
Mix half the cumin with the ginger and chutney and rub all over the cooled pork chops. Place pork in a roasting tin and roast at 190*C for about 30 minutes until cooked.
Mix the remaining cumin and mint into the yoghurt. Serve separately with the pork.
