“Arrrrrgh! Ahoy Mateys! ‘Terrible Ted here with a bit of pirate cookery in honor of:
MEOW LIKE A PIRATE DAY
Well you know today is a big day in the cat world so I HAD to break with tradition to have a “bacon-ish” recipe and give you a hearty PIRATE-APPROVED recipe instead. This is yummy and I think you’ll forgive me for not having something with bacon in it just this once!!
Pirate’s Pork Chops
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
4 thick (3/4 inch) pork chops
1 15-oz. can pineapple chunks with juice
1/4 cup golden syrup
1/4 cup ketchup
1/2 teaspoon curry powder
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
3 tablespoons raisins
Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the pork chops and fry on each side until browned, about 3 minutes per side. Pour in the liquid from the pineapple chunks, saving pineapple for later. Stir in the golden syrup and ketchup and season with curry powder, ginger, salt and pepper. Reduce heat to medium, cover and simmer for 30 minutes, or until pork chops are tender.
- When the pork chops are tender, pour in the pineapple chunks and add the raisins. Heat through briefly, then serve.
Is this good? Well if pirates like it you know it has to be good. They are a rather picky bunch to serve meals to. They do have a wide range of favorites though including some pretty disgusting things but this pork chop recipe is definitely on the YUMMY side of things!
OOPS – I forgot to “talk like a pirate” during this post. Forgive Me? Good…………talking like a pirate is complicated!!!! I’m also sure being a chef to pirates on a pirate ship would be RISKY BUSINESS.
EAT IT OR WALK THE PLANK YOU SCALIWAGS!
