Pork chops with pomegranate sauce topped with cranberries and feta

Pork chops with pomegranate sauce topped with cranberries and feta

Served with a side of salad greens and grilled baby russet potatoes.

Season the chops generously with salt and pepper. Grill the chops about 5-7 minutes on each side (depending on the thickness of the chops). When done, keep chops on a platter covered with aluminium foil and let it rest.

Meanwhile, heat about a tablespoon of oil over medium heat, add shallots (about 2 tablespoons finely chopped) stirring constantly until browned. Add pomegranate juice (1/2 cup), red wine vinegar (1/4 cup), chicken broth (1/4 cup), fresh thyme (about 1 tablespoon) and honey (1 tablespoon) and cook, stirring until the liquid is reduced by half, approx. 3-5 minutes. Reduce heat and stir in 1 tablespoon butter until it melts.

Transfer chops to plate, spoon sauce over chops and salad.


Looks funny, but tastes rreally really good

The consistency and level of cheese versus creamyness is perfect. Not too heavy. Which means one can have more. Yum.

Tip: It doesn't matter when you first take it out of the oven and it looks too 'wobbly'. That's the melted soft cheese effect and it's meant to be like that. It will set when you put it in the fridge.

Lessons learnt:

More butter to line the sides to prevent burning
More butter for base to prevent biscuits crumbling away
Less heat to prevent base from burning
Don't add coca butter - can't really taste it anyway
Cover cake with aluminium foil for most part of baking, then remove foil to give some colour without burning it.

Times like these when I wish I have a Nigella cake stand XD
