Chilli & Garlic Pork Chops

  • Grind the chilli, olive oil, garlic, thyme, salt and pepper in a mortar and pestle until a paste forms.

  • Marinate the chops in the chilli and garlic paste for 5 minutes.

  • Fry the chops in a frying pan over high heat for 5 minutes on each side.

  • Remove the chops and fry pan juices for another 3 minutes, then remove from the heat.

Crispy Spiced Potatoes

  • Combine salt, pepper, castor sugar and cayenne pepper in a small bowl and set aside.

  • Pour enough oil into a deep pot to completely submerge the potatoes when frying.

  • Place the pot over high heat, allowing the oil to reach a temperature suitable for deep frying.

  • Cut potatoes in half and pat dry with a paper towel to remove excess moisture.

  • Using tongs or a slotted spoon, gently place potatoes in the oil to avoid splatter.

  • Deep-fry for 7 - 10 minutes until golden and crispy.

  • Gently remove from oil and drain on paper towels to absorb excess oil.

  • Season the potatoes with the spice mix.


  • Serve each chop, drizzled with pan juices, alongside a portion of crispy spiced potatoes and a lemon wedge.


  • Refrigerate the parboiled potatoes for a minimum of 20 minutes to ensure a golden, crispy finish.
