Pork chops in Mexican Adobo from Diana Henry

We do not eat meat very often. If we do, I want to know where the meat comes from. I like the meat from Hof Steffen, they have their own animals within a small radius. Although this not an organic farm, it’s local and the ways are short. Normally I buy at the stall on the weekly market(s), but I was late and had to go by bike to the shop, where

  1. Spread about 65 ml of the adobo over the chops and keep the rest in the fridge for another dish. Leave to marinate, ideally overnight (in the fridge) but for 30 minutes at least.

    Let them come up to room temperature if you’ve had them in the fridge.
  2. Place in a roasting-tin and cook for 20 minutes (it wasn’t done, so I left it 10 minutes longer) in an oven preheated to 190°C/375°F/gas mark 5, covering with foil after 15 minutes. Transfer the meat to a warm serving dish and spoon the juices over the top. Scatter with the coriander and serve with guacamole or avocado salsa, wedges of lime, green salad and boiled rice.

    The chops look gorgeous! I never thought to use adobo as a marinade but it is perfect, isn’t it, with all of those flavouring agents and meat tenderizers (vinegars).
