Recipe from chef Thomas Sixt.
This recipe article deals with preparing pork chops in the oven. All the sure-fire tips from chef Thomas Sixt.
|2||pc||pork chops (I buy organic meat)|
|80||g||Sesame Furikake (See Sesame Cooking Box)|
Side dishes ingredients
|3||pc||tomatoes (I use organic tomatoes)|
|1||pc||garlic (I like to use young garlic)|
|1||tbs||brown sugar (Or Stevia)|
|1/4||bunch||thyme (Or majoram for decoration)|
Preheat the oven to the highest heat setting. Set the table and warm the plates. Have a roasting pan ready. Mix the sesame furikake in a bag.
Wash the tomato, cut it in half horizontally in the middle and place the halves in a roasting pan with the cut side facing up. Halve the garlic in the same way and place it ready. Peel the onion, cut it in half horizontally and place it in the roasting pan. Season the cut surfaces of the vegetables with salt, pepper, sugar, olive oil and chilli.
Wash the meat well under cold running water. Dry with kitchen paper and place in the roaster. Mix cornflour with a little cold water. Dab the top of the chop with starch water and spoon on sesame seeds.
Cover all the meat from the chop 2 mm thick with sesame seeds.
Nimbly place the meat and vegetables in the oven on medium heat. The cooking time is about 25 minutes, depending on the cooker. Watch the browning of the crust and reduce the temperature if necessary. The cooked meat will spring when pressed. Arrange and enjoy. Enjoy your meal!
If your cooker is an older model, I recommend searing the meat briefly and quickly on one side before applying the crust. Then let the meat cool briefly. Then apply the starch water and place the furikake sesame seeds as a crust on the meat. The cooking time is then reduced by 5-7 minutes.
Important note: Generally, the cooking time depends on your cooker model and the thickness of the chop. Thicker pieces of meat take longer, means start at a high temperature, then reduce the temperature. The starch water binds the sesame seeds to the meat like breadcrumbs.
