Prior to Poldark I watched the programme The Durrells in Corfu. I used to love Gerald Durrell's books with one exception, My Family and Other Animals which was about Corfu. I felt the same about the TV show tonight.
Monday is bowling of course so please keep your fingers crossed for me and our team. If the weather continues as it has been in the last couple of days I will be wearing a jacket. It is quite chilly now. Bit of a shock after all the lovely weather we have been having.
I notice all the stores lately have been stocked up for Hallowe'en but now I notice Christmas stuff creeping in already. It gets earlier every year I swear.
I found this recipe through Yummly and like the sound of it.
Korean Style Pork Chops
4 pork chops
1 Tbs olive oil
1/4 cup soy sauce low sodium
2 Tbs honey
4 cloves garlic minced
1 tsp sesame oil
1 tsp ginger minced
2 tsp sriracha sauce
black pepper to taste
1. Preheat oven to 400 F degrees.
2. In a medium size bowl whisk together the soy sauce, honey, garlic, ginger, sesame oil and sriracha sauce. Pour over pork chops and let marinade for about 20 minutes.
3. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet for medium high heat. Add pork chops, without marinade, and cook for about 5 minutes for the first side, or until it gets a nice brownish color. Flip the pork chops and pour the remaining marinade over them. Cook another 5 min on this side.
4. Place the skillet in the oven to finish cooking them. Roast for about 10 minutes, or until pork chops are completely cooked through.

If your pork chops are not very thick, mine were about 1 inch in thickness, you might not need to finish cooking them in the oven.
Have a great day
