About this recipe: This is a very simple and quick dish that combines the standard pork chop with the wonderful flavour of coconut and peanuts. Even the kids loved it.


Serves: 4 

  • 4 tablespoons plain flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 4 boneless pork chops, about 1cm thick
  • 75ml chicken stock
  • 125ml coconut milk
  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoons chopped spring onion
  • 4 tablespoons sliced red pepper
  • 4 tablespoons coarsely chopped dry roasted peanuts
  • 4 tablespoons chopped fresh coriander

Prep:7min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:17min 

  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 frying pan over medium-high heat. Place the pork chops in the hot pan, 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 pan. Cook, stirring constantly for 2 minutes, or until thickened. Pour peanut sauce over the chops, and garnish with green onion, red pepper, peanuts and coriander.
