Back To Business

Hello hello hello,

I hope you are all doing fabulously. Yes there has been an extreme hiatus at Elisa’s Table, and no, it is not for lack of recipes or new taste concoctions! In fact, I have been more immersed in the world of food and taste and all things culinary in the past months than ever before in my life. Over the past 18months I have been working hard behind the scenes to create new healthy recipes for my first Cook Book, and I am fast approaching completion! Over 90 recipes later, I thought it was time to start sharing some of them with you again! 

Food Writing has taken a larger focus in my life of late too, so as I publish more and more articles and reviews, I will endeavor to post the links to various publications on Elisa’s Table too.

But let’s get back to business! FOOD, quick, healthy and delish. Here is one to get you going again.

 

Mustard Soy Pork

1tbs ketjap manis

2tbs soy sauce

½ juice lime

2 cloves garlic minced

½ tbs grain mustard

salt

4-6 pork chops

coconut oil for cooking

 

Mix all the ingredients together (except coconut oil) in a marinating dish and add the pork. Marinade for 30 mins-24 hours. Remove from refrigerator 30 mins before cooking.

Heat some coconut oil in a pan and cook the chops turning once until just cooked through. They can be a tiny pink in the middle. Serve with a big green salad or green vegetables. Great with butternut/sweet potato mash, and even better when grilled on the bbq! You may like to serve with a wedge of lime too.

    • Hi Jean,

      Sorry, I should have included a note about Ketjap Manis. It is a thick, sweet, rich, syrupy Indonesian version of soy sauce containing sugar and spices. Pretty similar to soy sauce but sweeter and thicker. In London you can buy it in most supermarkets in the asian food section wherever they keep their soy sauce/tamari/oyster sauces etc. If you can’t find it in a supermarket, any asian/oriental grocery stores will stock it. Certainly it is widely available online. Hope that helps!
