Serves 4

4 boneless pork chops (1¼-inch thick – 6 oz each)

1 tbsp. five-spice powder

salt & ground black pepper, to taste

1 tsp. olive oil

1 shallot, finely chopped

4 cloves garlic, grated

1 tsp. dried rosemary

½ tsp. red pepper flakes

1 tbsp. coconut sugar (optional)

14 oz. pumpkin purée

8 fl oz. chicken broth

How to Prepare

Preheat the oven to 375°F.

Place the pork chops on a baking tray, pat dry with a paper towel and season with five-spice, salt and pepper.

Place a large ovenproof skillet over medium heat and add the olive oil.

Once the pan is hot add the pork and sear for 3-4 minutes on each side, until golden-brown. Then remove from the pan.

Place the skillet back onto the stove, reduce the heat and add the shallot, garlic, rosemary, red pepper flakes and coconut sugar and cook for 3-4 minutes. Then remove the skillet from the heat and stir in the pureed pumpkin and chicken broth.

Add the seared pork chops back into the skillet, and spoon the sauce

over the top. Place the skillet into the oven and cook for 10-15 minutes, or until the thickest part of the pork is cooked through.

Once cooked, remove from the oven and spoon the pan juices over the pork. Allow the pork to rest for 5 minutes before slicing and serving.
