Ingredients

  • 4 pork loin chops (1-1/4 lb/625 g)
  • 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon each of salt and pepper
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 8 carrots (1 lb/500 g)
  • 2 minced cloves of garlic
  • 1/2 cup chicken stock
  • 2 tablespoons wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons hot pepper jelly
  • 1/3 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley

Method

Trim fat from pork; slash edges at 1/2-inch (1 cm) intervals. Sprinkle with dry mustard and pinch each of the salt and pepper.

In nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat; fry chops, turning once, until browned and just a hint of pink remains inside, about 8 minutes. Transfer to plate; cover and keep warm. Skim fat from skillet.

Meanwhile, thinly slice carrots. Add carrots, garlic, chicken stock, vinegar and remaining salt and pepper to pan; bring to boil. Cover and reduce heat to medium; simmer for 6 minutes. Uncover and boil over high heat, tossing occasionally, until carrots are tender and liquid is almost evaporated, about 4 minutes.

Stir in hot pepper jelly; cook, turning carrots, until glazed and jelly is melted. Stir in nuts and parsley. Serve with chops.
