Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon black peppercorns
  • 1 teaspoon coriander seeds
  • 1 teaspoon allspice
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cumin seeds
  • 2 cloves garlic (halved)
  • 1 red chili (deseeded and cut into strips)
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 6 sprigs fresh flat leaf parsley (little reserved for garnish, remainder finely chopped)
  • 16 beets (small raw, peeled)
  • 8 pork chops (small, about 2 oz each)
  • 3 tablespoons balsamic glaze
  • 5 tablespoons goat cheese (creamy, crumbled)

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Grind the peppercorns, coriander, allspice, and cumin with a mortar and pestle. Transfer to a pan, add the garlic and gently toast until browned and fragrant. Transfer to a large bowl and allow to cool slightly.
  2. Add the chili, sea salt, 1 tbsp oil, and 4 tbsp water to the garlic mixture. Stir in the parsley and the beets. Cut 4 squares of parchment paper and place 4 beets in the center of each. Drizzle over the remaining spicy marinade. Gather the edges together and tie with kitchen string. Place in a roasting pan and bake for 1 hour.
  3. Season the pork with salt. Heat 1 tsp oil in a non-stick frying pan and cook the chops for 1-2 minutes on each side until cooked through. Season with black pepper, remove from the heat, and drizzle with the balsamic glaze.
  4. Remove the beets from the oven. Carefully open the packets and sprinkle with goat cheese. Serve with the pork chops, garnished with parsley.
