Grilled Pork chop with Sorpotel sauce

You know what would you taste great with pork? More pork! So I had some leftover sorpotel in my fridge, bursting with Goan classic flavours and I decided to turn it into a juicy gourmet dish. Check out my reinvented recipe.



Sorpotel – ½ cup

Goan toddy vinegar – 1 tsp

Pork chops – 3no.

Salt & pepper – to taste

Rosemary – 1 sprig

Thyme – 1 sprig

Lemon juice – 1tsp

Cooking oil – 2 tsp


1)      Begin your recipe by collecting your mise en place. This would refer to all the main ingredients.

2)      To a bowl, add in the salt, pepper, rosemary, thyme, lemon juice, salt & pepper. Whisk it with a fork & add in the pork chops. Mix it well once again & let the chops marinade for about 3 hours.

3)      For the sauce, very simple, add the sorpotel to a blender with the toddy vinegar, a pinch of salt & ¼ cup of water, blend to a smooth paste. Once ready, transfer to a pan & heat it once & leave aside.

4)      Now for cooking the pork chops, as is, transfer the chops to a pan & slow frill over a medium flame. Once the meat is sealed on either sides, i.e. 5 min later, transfer the chops to an aluminium tray & bake in a pre-heated oven at 200*c for 10 min.

5)      Serve with a side of mash potato & drizzle the sauce over the pork chops.
