Method

  1. Make marinade by mixing ingredients together. Put chops in a shallow bowl or tray, pour marinade over, turning chops to make sure they are coated all over, and leave to stand for at least 30 mins.

  2. To make salad, put the fish sauce, lime juice and 1 tbsp water into a small bowl, add the sugar, then mix until dissolved. Stir in shallot and chilli. Put cucumber in a serving dish, sprinkle mint over, pour dressing over and scatter with peanuts.

  3. Heat the barbecue or griddle pan and cook chops on each side for 4-5 mins, until cooked. Serve with cucumber salad.

This is nice and tasty but needed longer cooking time than suggested. The salad is lovely with the pork. (Weird that it's exactly a year since the last comment....)

Looks and tastes amazing - especially the cucumber salad. We had noodles on the side as looked a bit low carb for the kids - they demolished it.

Mmmph! I was hungry, so I ate it but I wouldn't rush to make it again. It was dinner, pure and simple and nothing to get excited about.
