P Cubed Chops

Serves 2 as Main Dish.

While not wholely original (green peppers, pineapple, and pork have long been seen about town as good friends) These are designed to be lighter, sweeter summer pork chops. They go well with sweet potatoes, or fruit chutneys if you are particularly ambitious.

P cubed, for Pepper, Pork, and Pineapple.

*Scaled this down, so use your intuition regarding the taste.

  • 1 c orange juice
  • 2 T sugar
  • 1 lime
  • 2 thick cut pork chops
  • 3 tsp salt
  • 3 tsp black pepper
  • 1 pineapple
  • 1 red onion, sliced into rings
  • 1 green pepper, sliced into rings
  • 4 T olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp (or to taste) cayenne pepper

preheat oven to 350deg


Pour the orange juice into a saucepan; add the sugar and bring to a boil. Meanwhile, skin and slice off the meat of the pineapple, and mince about 1/3 of it with a knife or food processor, then add it to the hot orange juice. juice the lime into the mixture, stir in the cayenne pepper, and let simmer until reduced by about 1/2. Then pour though a strainer, and return to the saucepan, reserving the strianed pineapple bits for later. Continue to heat until it is even more reduced- the goal is a light syrup. This sauce can be prepared significantly beforehand, just bring to temperature when pork chops are being cooked.

For really thick pork chops, you may wish to marinate them in a brine before hand, to soften them. 2 hours is normally enough; too long and they become too soft (if there is such a thing). A good brine would be about 3 cups water, 1/3 cup salt, 4 tbsp pepper, 1/4 cup melted OJ concentrate, and 2 tbsp sugar. You can experiement with the brine, of course; its purpose is mainly to tenderize the meat. For thinner pork chops, this isnt really necessary.

After brine bath, rub pork chops with the salt and pepper, on both sides. Do the same to the pepper and onion rings. Heat the oil a heavy skillet until good and hot, then lay the pork chops in and sear on both sides, about 3-5 minutes. Then transfer to a baking pan and put in the oven. While those are in the oven, lower the heat on the stove a little and carmelize the onion rings and pepper rings in the skillet with a little more oil. They should be soft with nice color. Reheat the pineapple orange sauce. Remove the pork chops from the oven, lay some onion and pepper rings on top, and drizzle with the sauce.

      I posted this on YouTube the other day and thought I'd post it here. Personally, when I make them for me I only use Erythritol (a sugar substitute) but depending on the friend sugar or a blend of the two. Unlike other zucchini brownies, these don't use egg white, so they're not cake-y, but dense and fudgy. 
       
      Oh, and because I use whey protein, they're higher in protein and good for post-workout bite. 
       
       
      Ingredients
      300 -400 grams zucchini 1/4 teaspoon salt 1 cup sugar or sugar substitute 1/2 cup cocoa 1-2 tablespoons flavoring (brandy, rum, vanilla, etc) 2 shots of espresso (or instant, 60ml/2oz) 2 egg yolks 1/2 cup flour 1/2 cup oatmeal 1 cup whey protein (or milk powder) 1 teaspoon cinnamon (optional, but adds nice flavor)   1. Mince the zucchini in the food processor with the salt.
      2. Add the sugar or sugar substitute and process until the sugar is dissolved.
      3. Bloom your cocoa: In a separate bowl, combine the cocoa with HOT espresso and your flavorings (including cinnamon). Stir until mostly dissolved.
      4. To the food processor add the cocoa mixture and two egg yolks and blend together.
      5. Add the whey protein or milk powder to the mixture and blend together.
      6. Add the oatmeal and blend.
      7. Add the flour and pulse to incorporate (in other words, try not to over mix).
      8. Pour into a brownie pan and bake for 20-30 minutes at 180C/350F

      This makes one not very large cake in an "English cake" pan (26x6.5 cm / 10x2.5 inch).
      You may want to double up the recipe and make two
      FoOr variation, you can use any citrus, and add mixins such as poppy seeds, candied ginger, sumac, raspberries, etc.
       
      Please tell me if you make it, I really hope that you will like it!
       
      Lemon-mandarin pound cake
      Batter:
      140g white flour 3/4 teaspoon baking powder (7 g) 190g white sugar 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon salt (1.5 g) 15-20g fine zest from a lemon and an orange/mandarin 160g labaneh or tart Greek yogurt or (5% fat or more) 2 large eggs 45g olive oil - aromatic, but not too vegetal, you can use natural oil if preferred 1 teaspoon vanilla extract  For syrup:
      25g sugar  apx. 7-6 g of long and thin stripes of peel (zest) from a lemon and an orange/mandarin - see photo below for reference Apx. 45g lemon juice  
      Method:
      Heat oven to 170 deg C (340 deg F).   Grease one pan. Prepare 3 mixing bowl: one of them should be quite large and another should be a mixer bowl to beat the egg whites in.
        In the small bowl, measure flour and baking powder.
        In the large bowl, mix sugar, fine citrus zest and salt. Let it rest while you proceed. Separate eggs, placing egg whites in the empty mixer bowl and the yolks in the large bowl with the sugar and zest. Add yogurt, vanilla and oil to the bowl with the sugar and yolks.
        Beat egg whites to soft peaks. Beat yolk-sugar-yogurt mixture until smooth and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Fold the egg white foam into the yolk mixture, until smooth and almost uniform. Sieve flour and baking soda mixture over the liquids. Fold from the bottom up just until uniform. Do not over mix. Pour into greased pan. Bake for apx. 45 minutes. A skewer should go out cleanly. The cake should rise to fill the pan and get a tan color. Do not over bake. 
        While the cake bakes, make the syrup: Mix together sugar and peel stripes (long zest). Mix well for the sugar to draw flavor from the peel. Add about the lemon juice and mix well until the sugar dissolves. If it doesn't, heat the syrup very briefly. When the cake is out of the oven, pierce it all over with a thin skewer or toothpick. Pour the syrup over the cake while it is still hot from the oven. Spread the remaining syrup soaked peel strips over the cake. Let chill and store in an airtight container, or wrapped in nylon.
        For variation, you may add candied orange peel, poppy seeds, mint, raspberries, etc.
