Think pork chops and apple sauce but with a few tweaks. TWEAK! There is a spice rub that I put on the pork chops that consists of turmeric, salt, aji dulce powder, cinnamon, grains of paradise, and urfa biber (What are things you can’t buy for $1000 Alex). Then it’s fried! Before that started I worked on the fuji apple chutney. It has a base of brown sugar, white wine vinegar, and fructose. I added a few spices once it […]
Ay papi! Pork chop brined in brown sugar and a few secret spices. The scallops are salt brined then seared in clarified butter. The aji dulce relish is made with pimentos, pimenton dulce, and red bell peppers….it’s sautéed in a pan sauce I made when the pork chops were done frying….think brown butter…..think amazing.

(Click each picture to make it larger) Pork Chops. They’re my favorite thing that my mom makes. She usually does a bone-in pork chop. I didn’t want to do a bone-in chop because I am going to Puerto Rico in a few days and I don’t want to cheat myself into thinking that I can duplicate her recipe. I know exactly how it tastes and I know how to make it but it’s different when Mom makes it. Thanks again […]
