Sliced Pork chops in Peanut Butter Sauce

Slightly sweet and tangy, the Asian spices marry perfectly well with the peanut butter. 

2 pork chops
1  tsp soy sauce
1/2 tsp fish sauce
1 tsp corriander powder
1/2 tsp fennel powder
1/4 tsp cumin powder
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
1/2 to 1 tsp red Thai curry paste
1/2 Tbsp lime juice
2 garlic cloves, minced 
11/2 Tbsp crunchy peanut butter
1/2 tsp palm sugar
1 red Thai chile, minced
1 Tbsp chopped green onions
a little salt

Remove bone and thinly slice the pork.

In a bowl, add the bones, sliced pork and add soy sauce, fish sauce coriander, fennel, cumin and turmeric powder. Also add the curry paste, 1/4 tsp salt and lime juice and mix very well to combine the spices with the meat.

Let is marinate in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.

Once ready to cook, add a little oil in a wok. Stir fry the garlic for a 15 seconds then add the bones to cook first. Stir fry for 2 minutes add a little water. This ensures the bones are cooked well before adding the sliced pork which takes a few minutes to cook. Now add the slice pork and stir fry for a minute on high heat. Add a 1/4 cup of water and cook for another 2 or 3 minutes until meat is cooked but not rubbery. 
Add peanut butter, palm sugar,and the minced red Thai chile, if using. Adjust the sauce consistency and seasonings and cook for a minute or so. Serve with Jasmine Broken Fried Rice.
