Curried pork chops and smashed peas

>> Thursday, February 18, 2010

For dinner tonight I broke out the curry powder to season my delicious pork rib chops. Not a spice I use often, I think curry is under-rated here in the States. This dish was quite nice when paired with smashed peas. All you need for this quick dish is:

Pork rib chops
Curry powder
Kosher salt and black pepper
Olive oil
2 shallots, chopped
2 cups frozen peas, thawed
fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint
Pita bread

Heat the oven to 400 degrees. Season the chops with curry powder, salt and pepper on both sides.

Heat one tablespoon of the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Working in batches, brown the chops, about 2 minutes per side.  Transfer to a baking sheet and roast to the desired doneness, about 10 minutes. 

Wipe out the skillet and heat a tablespoon oil over medium heat. Add the shallots and cook, stirring occasionally until soft, 2 to 3 minutes.  Add the peas and gently smash with a fork. Cook until heated through, about 2 minutes. 

Stir in the lemon juice, mint, and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper.  Serve with the pork chops and pita bread. Enjoy!!
