  • 2 tbsp sunflower or groundnut oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • 4 big pork loin chops
  • 1 onion, roughly chopped
  • ½ tbsp Grace Hot Pepper sauce (Buy Now)
  • 1 red pepper, deseeded and cut into 2 cm (¾ in) cubes
  • 1 yellow pepper, deseeded and cut into 2 cm (¾ in) cubes
  • 2 sticks of celery, cut into 2 cm (¾ in) chunks
  • 2 cm (¾ in) piece of root ginger, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 4 tbsp brown sugar
  • 3 tsp dry mustard
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 150 ml (¼ pint) water or chicken stock
  • Boiled rice or Rice and Peas, to serve


      • Preheat the oven to 160°C/325°F/gas mark 3.
      • Heat the oil in a frying pan, season the chops and brown them on both sides. Put them in an ovenproof dish in which they can lie in a single layer.
      • In the fat left in the pan, cook the onion, peppers and celery until they are quite soft and the onion is pale gold.
      • Add the ginger and garlic and cook for another minute, then stir in the sugar, mustard, lime and hot sauce.
      • Cook for another minute before adding the tomato purée and tomatoes.
      • Season, add the water or stock, then stir again.
      • Pour this sauce over the chops and cook in the preheated oven for 1½ hours, or until the pork is tender and cooked through, and the sauce has reduced.
      • Cover with foil if needed towards the end of cooking if overbrowning.
      • Serve with rice or Rice and Peas.
      • Enjoy
