Moroccan Pork

Isn't January difficult?

Long cold nights, short days, post Christmas credit card bills, the in-built post Christmas desire to retire to a cave and sleep..and then into this mix we throw a sugar detox!  I'm trusting that February is only just around the corner and those long days are coming round again and woo-hoo, all this will pass.

And til then, here's an easy Paleo tea which passes the "cook me quickly" taste test for those returning from work with a bunch of hungry mouths to feed up in a hurry....


6 pork chops
2-4 tbspn cooking fat
2 garlic cloves
1/3 cup of chicken stock

For Moroccan Sauce

1 onion (diced)
2/3 cup of chicken stock
1 tspn cumin
1/2 tspn cinnamon
1/2 cup coconut milk


Heat the oil and fry the pork gently on either side for three to four minutes in the hot fat.

Remove the pork and add the garlic and stock scraping the bits off the bottom pan as you go

Add the remaining stock, cumin and cinnamon.

Add the onion and fry lightly until soft (about 3 - 4 minutes)

Add the coconut milk to the pan bring to the boil

Simmer over low heat until slightly thickened (2 -3 minutes)

Return meat to pan and serve.

For this, our main meal of the day we added left over belly pork, cabbage and a few sweet potato rounds which had been fried in coconut oil - chips!
