Cuban-Style Spiced Pork Chops

with Poblano Slaw & Spicy Mojo Verde

Cooking time

20 minutes




860 /serving

It’s always good to have mojo, but sometimes it’s even better to have green mojo. Chopped cilantro gives this quick-made mojo verde its fresh colour, with added flavour from citrus juices and garlic—plus a bonus hit of hot sauce for a fiery kick. It’s an ideal companion sauce for your pan-seared chops sprinkled with sweet, smoky spices and laid over long-grain rice. A poblano and cabbage slaw delivers a fresh crunch and a touch more tropical heat.

Cook the rice
In a medium pot, combine the rice, 1 ¼ cups water (double for 4 portions) and a big pinch of salt; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat, cover and simmer, 17 to 20 min., until the rice is tender and the water has been absorbed. Remove from the heat and let sit, covered, for 5 min. Fluff and set aside in a warm spot.
