Chicharron Crusted Pork Chop

Honestly no description will do this pork chop justice.  It’s exactly as good as it sounds, and as a bonus, it's keto-friendly. 

Chicharron or Chicharrones are typically seasoned and deep fried pork rinds, but can be made in various styles. They originated in Andalucia, Spain (chicharrón) but you'll find they are a popular feature across food cultures in Latin America and Asia including in Mexico, Philippines, Colombia, and Thailand among other places. 

Serves 2

Ingredients:

Method:

  1. Heat a pan over a medium high heat.
  2. Rub the oil into the pork chops, and season with salt. If you’re trying to impress people, ask your butcher to “french trim” the pork.
  3. Cook to your desired doneness. We like it medium - slightly blushing - but if that’s not your style cook it until fully well done.
  4. Remove from the pan, and rest for 5 minutes. 
  5. While it rests, crush up the chicharron on a plate. Think corn flake consistency, doesn’t have to be perfect. 
  6. Brush the Mogambo onto the pork chops, and then roll in the chicharron to coat.

Notes: You’ll want to cook this one, it’s really good. Impress your friends and make it for a dinner party or a date.
