Don't let a little spice put you off! These pork chops are juicy and saucy and spicy in the best way. With the gentle heat of Korean chilli paste, known as gochujang, this marinade is a flavour bomb. This recipe uses the marinade for the meat and veg and then used for the sauce, making it a super easy weeknight meal that can be thrown together in minutes.
Ingredients

  • 12 Tsp of Sesame Oil
  • 1 of Spring Onion
  • 2 of Pork Rib Chop

  • 34 Cup of Jasmine Rice
  • 1 of Green chilli
  • 1 Tbsp of Rice Vinegar

Recipe

Marinate Pork:

Preheat the oven to 180°C while you prepare your ingredients. In a bowl, add sesame oil to gochujang marinade. Stir well to combine. Use 13 of the marinade to coat the pork chops. This can be done up to 4 hours in advance. Set aside remaining marinade.

Prepare Carrots & Pork:

Peel the carrots and cut them into quarters. Coat carrots with 3 Tbsp of remaining marinade and arrange the carrots on a lined baking tray leaving room to add the chops. Bake for 15 minutes until the carrots start to soften, add the chops and cook for 12-15 minutes or until carrots are tender and pork is cooked through. Setting a timer is a good idea.

Cook the Rice:

In a medium pot, bring 112 cups of water to a boil. Stir in the rice; cover and reduce the heat to low. Simmer for 15 minutes until all of the water is absorbed. Cover the pot and let the rice absorb the water off of the heat. Fluff the finished rice with a fork.

Pickle Chilli:

Finely slice the chilli and combine with the vinegar and sugar. Allow to sit until ready to serve. Combine the remaining marinade with the mayonnaise. Thinly slice the spring onion.

You Plate It:

Dish up the rice, carrots and pork chop evenly between plates. Drain the pickled chillies. Garnish plates with as much chilli as desired, sprinkle with spring onion and serve mayo on the side.
