Ingredients
  

  • 2 thin cut bone-in pork chops (3oz or 85g)
  • 3 tbsp lard
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • ½ tsp sweet paprika
  • ½ tsp curry powder

Instructions
 

  • Remove the pork chops from the fridge about 15 minutes before cooking, so they warm up to room temperature before cooking.
  • Melt the lard in a medium sized frying pan over a medium-high heat. (I use number 7.)
  • Mix the salt, pepper, paprika and curry powder.
  • Rub the spice mix on both sides of the pork chops.
  • When the lard is sizzling, add both pork chops to the pan.
  • Fry the pork chops for 3 minutes on one side, flip them over and fry for 2 minutes on the other side. Remove if the juices run clear.
  • A meat thermometer should read 62°C (or 145°F).
  • Wrap the cooked pork chops in aluminium foil and leave for 5 minutes.
  • Serve.
