Chilli Lime Chicken Recipe I love this chilli Lime Chicken recipe and find that it can…
I love a good pork dinner and one evening I made pork but wanted to give it a little extra taste, so decided to marinate it for 30 minutes. I love the taste of balsamic and combining this with a bit of lime and chilli flakes, it really lifts the flavour of the pork and makes it incredible.
The marinade is actually pretty easy to make and even though I would recommend marinating it for a few hours, you can still get a lot of taste from it from only 30 minutes. The first thing I would recommend is getting some nice thick pork loin steaks, ideally get it from your butcher or local farm shop to support local business.
The follow recipe was enough for 3 thick pork loins, you may need to adjust slightly depending on the amount and size of your pork loin steaks. In a bowl place 2 tbsp of oil, 4 tbsp of balsamic glaze and give this a good stir together. Add the zest of one lime as well as the juice of one lime, put in a good tbsp of red dried chilli flakes and again give it a good stir.
Place the pork loin steaks in the mixture and then turn over to give the other side a quick coating. Pop these in the fridge and leave them for 30 minutes at least, turning them after 15 minutes has passed. You could leave these for longer to intensify the flavour even more, just remember to continue turning them so both sides get an equal amount.
When ready remove from the fridge and place in a baking tray and cook for 30-40 or until cooked on 180 degrees/gas mark 4. It’s important to check that they are cooked prior to serving so depending on the size of the pork, you may need to adjust the timings.
Make sure you continue to turn the pork whilst it’s cooking. I would recommend cooking the Balsamic Pork Loin Steaks with a nice bit of mash potato and a nice selection of vegetables…yummy!! With the balsamic flavour though, it would also go well on a bed of rice or noodles.
I have enjoyed cooking for some years now, its one of the only things that I can do that makes me relaxed and forget any worries I have. I love trying new foods and visiting restaurants. Other hobbies include writing, game development and work :)
