Cajun Marinated Pork Loin Chops with Blanched Broccolini (Video)

Ingredients

  • 2 large bone in pork chops
  • Marinade
  • 2 tsp Cajun spice
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 2 tsp salt
  • Fresh cracked pepper to taste
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • Broccollini 300g

Marinade Recipe

  1. Crush the garlic.
  2. Mix all the ingredients together using a whisk.

 

Instruction

  1. Coat the pork chops and let sit for approx. 2 hours refrigerated.
  2. Remove the chops from the fridge ½ hour before you intend to cook them.
  3. Trim the broccolini
  4. Place a pan of water on the stove and bring to the boil. The pan should be big enough to comfortably fit the broccolini.
  5. Use a non stick fry pan to place on a high heat on the stove
  6. Add vegetable, canola or Cobram extra version olive oil (this has a high smoke point) – enough to coat the base of the pan.
  7. You will know that the oil is hot when you see ripples in it.
  8. Gently place the pork chops into the pan (away from you).
  9. Cook the first side to a nice brown golden colour.
  10. Turn over to do the same.
  11. Once the second side is also a nice brown golden colour, turn down the heat.
  12. Using a digital thermometer monitor the heat rising in the meat by probing in different parts of the meat. Once the meat has reached 65 – 70 degrees C remove from the heat.
  13. Let rest for about 5 minutes.
  14. In the meantime, place the trimmed broccolini into the pan of boiling water. Let boil for approx. 5 minutes. Drain into a colander.

  15. Season to taste.
  16. Serve the pork chops with the broccolini.
