DIFFICULTY: Medium
PREP TIME: 1hr 25 mins (includes 1hr marinading time)
COOKING TIME: 25 minutes
SERVES: 4

Recipe Ingredients

4 pork chops
1 Tbsp (15ml) oil
1 orange, juiced or ¼ cup (60ml) naartjie juice
salt and freshly milled pepper
4 nests of egg noodles, cooked according to packaged instructions
2 stalks of spring onion, chopped

FOR THE SOY MARINADE

3 Tbsp (45ml) brown sugar or honey
3 Tbsp (45ml) soy sauce
2 cloves garlic
juice of a lemon
1 Tbsp (15ml) fresh ginger, finely grated
Freshly cracked pepper
1 Tbsp (15ml) SPAR sunflower oil or sesame oil
1-2 chilli, chopped
1-2 Tbsp coriander, chopped
1-2 stalks of spring onion, chopped

To serve: cucumber ribbons, fresh chilli, coriander and lime
toasted sesame seeds (optional), enough for sprinkling

Recipe Method

* Blend all of the marinade ingredients together.
* Marinate the pork chops in the marinade for at least an hour.
* Heat the oil in a large pan, then add the chops (do not add the marinade).
* Cook for about 5 minutes on each side or until brown, then add the marinade and orange juice and cook for another 5-10 minutes depending on how thick your chops are – they should be cooked through but not dry, and should be nice and sticky.
* Add the cooked noodles and spring onion to the pan.
* Check the seasoning and add extra soya sauce if needed.
* Serve topped with cucumber ribbons, fresh coriander, chilli, lime and sesame seeds.

* Optional extra: char a naartjie in the same pan as the chops, and serve alongside the chops.

Hints & Tips

The marinade can be kept in the fridge for a week and can also be used on chicken, fish or vegetables.
