Step 1:

Make the marinade by pounding the black peppercorns, salt, coriander stem and garlic together with a mortar and pestle until a smooth paste is achieved.

Step 2:

Add the palm sugar, fish sauce, sweet dark soy sauce, whiskey and vegetable oil. Stir together so well combined. Alternatively, you can blitz these ingredients together in a food processor or blender.

Step 3:

Place the pork chops in a ziplock bag with the marinade and move the pork chops around the bag, ensuring they are well coated. Leave to marinate in the fridge for 4 hours.

Step 4:

Remove your pork chop from the fridge to ‘temper’ up to an hour before cooking. This allows the meat to come to room temperature, allowing you to achieve a more consistent final cook.

Step 5:

Preheat a heavy cast iron pan in the Gozney Dome outdoor oven, when hot add the vegetable oil and cook the pork chops until golden and caramelised on the outside while still slightly blushing inside. This will take around 5 minutes depending on the thickness of the pork chops. Flip and move the pork chops regularly until the core temperature reaches 149°F.

Step 6:

Remove the pork chops from the pan and rest at room temperature for 5 minutes.

Step 7:

Meanwhile, make the red chilli nahm jim by pounding together the red chillies, coriander stem, garlic and salt with a mortar and pestle until a smooth paste is achieved. Add the palm sugar, lime juice and fish sauce. Mix together so the sugar is completely dissolved. It will taste spicy and sour with a slight background sweetness.

Step 8:

Carve your pork chop into 0.78" slices, arrange on a serving plate then spoon the red chilli nahm jim over the sliced pork. Sprinkle with the roughly chopped coriander and serve with steamed rice.
