Thai-Style Pork Chops with a Satay-Style Sauce recipe

Preparation Time: 15 minutes | Cooking Time: 30 minutes

In this recipe, pork chops are coated in flour, cumin and cayenne and fried until golden, before being served with a delicious satay-style sauce made with coconut milk and peanut butter. The pork is garnished with spring onions, roasted peanuts and red peppers for a delicious bit of crunch and freshness.


  • 4 boneless pork chops
  • 4 tbsp. plain flour
  • 1 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp. each cayenne pepper and salt
  • Oil to fry
  • 125ml coconut milk
  • 75ml chicken stock
  • 2 tbsp. smooth peanut butter
  • 1 tbsp. runny honey
  • 1 tsp. minced ginger
  • Pinch of salt and pepper
  • Bunch of spring onions
  • 1 red pepper
  • 4 tbsp. roasted peanuts


  1. Mix the plain flour with cumin, cayenne pepper and salt. Coat the chops in the mix, shaking off any excess. Heat oil in a frying pan and fry the chops for 7-9 minutes on either side until golden and cooked through to your liking.

  2. Meanwhile, stir together the coconut milk, chicken stock, peanut butter, honey, ginger and salt and pepper. Pour into a pan and heat until bubbling and thickened, stirring to melt the peanut butter down.

  3. Shred the spring onions on the diagonal and slice the pepper in half. Remove the seeds and thinly slice into strips.

  4. To serve, arrange the chops on a platter. Pour the sauce over and garnish with the spring onions, pepper and roasted peanuts.

If you want a little extra crunch, use crunchy peanut butter instead of smooth. Recipe serves 4. Serve with noodles.
