These Peri-Peri Pork Chops are made in a skillet, in a delicious, spicy, hot Peri-Peri Tomato Sauce – perfect for dinner and especially hot-n-spicy food lovers!
Peri-Peri Pork Chops are so full of flavor – spicy with a delicious bite to it. We have Pork Chops quite often, and I am always trying to cook them differently.
Except when we are in the mood for my 1000 Island Tangy Pork Chops . (that will always be our number one favorite).
Kids might not like the sharp Peri-Peri taste, therefore you might want to use only half of the quantity below.
But if your kids love chili, they would most definitely be happy with these Pork Chops.
You will notice that I only remove the skin from the tomatoes once cooked.
This makes it much easier to remove and the Tomato would not cook away as quickly. Just hook your fork into a piece of skin and pull it off – very easy.
These Peri-Peri Pork Chops are also one of my very few Pork Chop recipes, which I make on the stove top.
I would mostly cook Chops in the oven or over the coals. Reminds me, I have a delicious Lamb Chop recipe which I also make quite often and is also made on the stove top.
