Honey-glazed pork chops/ Jam cookies
These two recipes falls under my category of quick and easy.I came across this recipe for the pork chops in the Ideas magazine – it is not only quick and easy – it’s also delicious – well worth trying.
Honey-glazed pork chops
Preparation time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 10 minutes
- · 30ml lemon juice
- · 60ml honey
- · 60ml soy sauce
- · 1 clove garlic
- · 5ml dried crushed chillies
- · 8 pork chops
- · 10ml oil
- · baked potatoes and vegetables, to serve
Mix together the lemon juice, honey, soy, garlic and chillies in a shallow dish. Marinate the chops for at least 30 minutes.
Heat oil in a frying pan over a high heat.
Add the chops and brown on both sides.
Reduce heat and pour in any remaining marinade and 50ml water.
Simmer for five minutes until cooked through.
These biscuits are so quick to put together and very moreish – do not last for long.
80g soft butter
Heat the oven to 180 Celsius and line 2 baking sheets with grease proof paper or spray and cook while you prepare the dough.
Place the softened butter and the caster sugar in a bowl and cream together until the mixture is light. You can use an electric beater for this.
Add the milk and vanilla essence, beat with your electric beater on medium to combine well.
Now add the custard powder and flour and mix again into a soft dough.
Take heaped tablespoons of dough, roll them into little balls and place on the baking sheets. Press your thumb or the back of a wooden spoon into the center of each ball to form a small well.
Fill each well with jam and into the oven for 15 minutes or so.
Thats it…remove from the oven and let them cool slightly before transferring to a wire rack.
