The muscovado sauce is infused with Chinese Five Spice, a blend of spices including ginger, fennel, cloves and star anise.
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 pack the The Black Farmer Pork Loin Chops
For the muscovado sauce
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 onion, finely chopped
- 1 teaspoon garlic puree
- 1 red chilli, finely chopped
- 200g can chopped tomatoes
- 100g dark muscovado sugar
- 2 teaspoons Chines five-spice powder
- 3 tablespoons light soy sauce
- 75ml red wine
- 1 vegetable stock cube
- 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
To make the sauce, heat the oil in a wide pan and cook the onion for 3-4 minutes until starting to soften. Add the garlic and tomato puree and cook for 1 minute. Stir in all the remaining ingredients and gently heat, stirring occasionally until the sugar has dissolved. Bring to a simmer and gently bubble for 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a frying pan and cook the pork chops for 5 minutes until browned all over. You will have to do this in two batches. Transfer the chops to the sauce and simmer gently for 5-8 minutes until the pork is cooked and the sauce is reduced and thickened. Serve immediately.
