Asian Pork Chops, Culinessa style
Sometimes you crave something you ate when you were little, but somehow you still remember what it tasted like. Do you guys know what I mean? haha Or does it not make any sense at all. Niw’s I was craving my moms pork chops she served us with fried potatos and vegetables called “tajerblad” in my country Suriname. There is no other vegetable nor a translation for it, but you can best decribe it as something like creamy spinach.
Today I made another recipe for the boys from Koken met Aanbiedingen and as I was thinking what to make them, I thought why not combine my cravings with this recipe. Taraaa the idea for these Asian Pork Chops was born. They are more Chinese, but not an authentic recipe, so I just call them Asian. Hope you like them too. They are perfect to have with some steamy rice or mashed potatoes too. Oh and imagine them on the bbq in summer. S C O R E I think!
