This was an experiment that turned out really well. I wanted to grill some pork chops but was unsure of what to marinade the chops in. When I opened my fridge, the bottle of salted plums called out to me.
I love salted plums! I use them for this salted plum lemonade drink that is possibly one of my favourite drinks ever.
This recipe is so mind-boggling easy….all you need are 3 ingredients. YES, only THREE!
# – Salted plum pork chop.
- 2 pork chops, with rind still attached
- 6 salted plums
- A dash of ground black pepper
# – First, in a bowl, throw in salted plums and pork chops.
# – Squash the plums and massage the chops with the flesh for 2 minutes.
# – Then sprinkle the ground black pepper all over the pork chops. Chill in the fridge for 1-2 hours. Don’t leave them too long or you’ll end up with salted chops :P
# – Heat up a well greased griddle till when you flick a drop of water in it, you will hear it sizzle (this is a method to check that your pan is hot enough).
# – Lay the chops over the griddle for 5-8 minutes depending on how thick the chops are.
# – Then turn over the chops and cook for 5-8 minutes as well.
# – With a thong, hold up the chop sideways to cook the rind…it will transform into beautiful crackling :D
# – Salted plum pork chops, DONE!
# – Juicy, succulent pork that’s perfectly flavoured with a bit of kick and crispy crackling to boot!
You know you want to make it happen :D

my grandma makes a dish of pork-ribs stewed with sour plums. that said, you can try adding garlic to this dish… it goes very well with the sour plums and enhances the flavour.
yums! thanks for the tip :D
Yah I have to admit this was a genius idea, I had no idea how it was seasoned I just knew it tasted really good!
i like how the chops were not merely salted, but with an interesting flavour.
Can use non-stick pan or not?
