Marinated Pork Chops

Rated

Ingredients

1 whole medium onion peeled and coarsely chopped
1 oz fresh ginger root, (1 inch square), peeled and coarsely chopped
4 whole Garlic cloves, peeled and coarsely chopped
8 oz can, tomato sauce
2 tsp ground coriander
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp ground turmeric
1/4 tsp ground mace
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1 tsp salt
1/8 tsp freshly ground pepper
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tablespoon lemon juice
1/4 - 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper (optional) or to taste
8 whole pork loin chops

Preparation

Put the chopped onions, ginger, and garlic in blender and blend to a smooth paste (about 1 minute at high speed).

Combine paste with remaining ingredients except the pork chops and mix well.

With a fork, prod holes in the chops and put them in the marinade. Rub them well with the marinade, cover, and leave refrigerated for at least 6 hours.

Light the charcoal. When the fire is really hot, put the grill on its lowest notch. Lift the pork chops out and place them on the grill. Reserve any marinade. Sear for about 8 minutes on each side. Now put the grill in its highest notch and cook for about 20 minutes on each side. Brush with the marinade before you turn chops over each time.

To serve: If you want a very simple meal, these chops could be served with plain boiled potatoes and a salad of spinach or Boston lettuce or romaine and onion rings.
