Australian Women’s Weekly NZ - - CONTENTS -

SERVES 4

4 thick pork chops, about 250g each, trimmed 1 quan­tity (about 8 tbsp) uchu­cuta, see right, plus ex­tra to serve (op­tional)

1 Mar­i­nate the chops in the uchu­cuta for a cou­ple of hours or overnight in the fridge.

2 Place the chops, doused in plenty of the sauce, on a foil-lined bak­ing tray. Cook un­der a pre­heated hot grill for 4-5 min­utes on each side un­til the meat is cooked through and the fat is gen­tly charred. Re­move from the heat and leave to rest for 5 min­utes.

3 Serve the chops with the juices from the foil and a spoon­ful of ex­tra uchu­cuta on the side (don’t use any un­cooked sauce that has been in con­tact with the raw meat).
