I have recently been looking for something a bit more interesting to do with pork than just cooking pork chops in some sort of sauce. I came across a recipe for African Pork in this weeks Aldi magazine which I thought looked rather interesting and summery. I wanted something a little bit more spicy though so I adapted the basic recipe. I added some fresh chilli peppers and some onions into the mix. This was the final result:
It was a lovely fresh fruity recipe with a bit of kick to it. It put me in the mind of Moroccan food and was perfect for a hot summer day. I served it with savoury rice. It would also be great with plain rice and a side salad or maybe some couscous. If you want to try it this is the recipe.
