Sticky Pork-Chops

Enjoy these delicious pork chops coated with a zesty, spicy Asian inspired sauce.

Recipe Ingredients

4 pork chops
1 Tbsp (15ml) oil
1 orange, juiced or ¼ cup (60ml) naartjie juice
salt and freshly milled pepper
4 nests egg noodles, cooked according to packaged instructions
2 stalks spring onion, chopped

FOR THE SOY MARINADE

3 Tbsp (45ml) brown sugar or honey
3 Tbsp (45ml) soy sauce
2 cloves garlic
juice of a lemon
1 Tbsp (15ml) fresh ginger, finely grated
Freshly cracked pepper
1 Tbsp (15ml) sunflower oil or sesame oil
1-2 chilli, chopped
1-2 Tbsp coriander, chopped
1-2 stalks spring onion, chopped

Recipe Method

– Blend all of the marinade ingredients together.
– Marinate the pork chops in the marinade for at least an hour.
– Heat the oil in a large pan, then add the chops (do not add the marinade).
– Cook for about 5 minutes on each side or until brown, then add the marinade and orange juice and cook for another – 5-10 minutes depending on how thick your chops are – they should be cooked through but not dry, and should be nice and sticky.
– Add the cooked noodles and spring onion to the pan.
– Check the seasoning and add extra soya sauce if needed.
Serve topped with cucumber ribbons, fresh coriander, chilli, lime and sesame seeds.
– Optional extra: char a naartjie in the same pan as the chops, and serve alongside the chops.

Lemon meringue scones recipe

Lemon meringue scones

Lemon meringue scones recipe. Swap your regular scones for something a bit different: this easy, retro recipe inspired by lemon meringue pie.

Ingredients (10)

– 400g (2 2/3 cups) self-raising flour, plus extra, to dust
– 100g (1/2 cup) caster sugar
– 60g butter, chilled, chopped
– 1 tbsp finely grated lemon rind
– 250ml (1 cup) lemonade
– 80ml (1/3 cup) fresh lemon juice
– 25g bought mini meringues, finely crushed
– 160ml (2/3 cup) thickened cream, whipped
– 130g (1/2 cup) bought lemon curd
– Icing sugar, to dust

Method

Step 1

Preheat oven to 220C/200C fan forced. Line a baking tray with baking paper. Sift the 400g (2 2/3 cups) self-raising flour, plus extra, to dust into a large bowl. Stir in 2 tablespoons of the 100g (1/2 cup) caster sugar. Use your fingertips to rub the 60g butter, chilled, chopped into the mixture until it resembles fine crumbs. Stir in the 1 tbsp finely grated lemon rind. Make a well in the centre.

Step 2

Pour the 250ml (1 cup) lemonade into the well. Use a flat-bladed knife in a cutting motion to mix until evenly incorporated and the mixture just begins to hold together. Knead on a lightly floured surface until just smooth. Shape dough into a 2cm-thick disc. Use a round 6cm-diameter pastry cutter dipped in extra flour to cut 12 rounds from the dough, re-shaping offcuts as needed. Place the scones, slightly apart, on the prepared tray. Bake for 17 minutes or until golden and scones sound hollow when tapped on top.

Step 3

Meanwhile, place the 80ml (1/3 cup) fresh lemon juice and remaining sugar in a small saucepan. Bring to the boil over high heat. Boil for 3-4 minutes or until thickens slightly. Remove from heat.

Step 4

Use a serrated knife to slice the warm scones in half horizontally. Brush the tops of the scones with the syrup then sprinkle with 25g bought mini meringues, finely crushed. Top the scone bases with 160ml (2/3 cup) thickened cream, whipped and 130g (1/2 cup) bought lemon curd then sandwich with the scone tops. Serve dusted with Icing sugar, to dust.
