Serves 4 (serving size: 1 pork chop, about 1 1/2 tablespoons sauce, and about 2/3 cup potatoes)

The bell pepper sauce would be delicious over grilled vegetables or as a dip for grilled shrimp.

How to Make It

Step 1

Place potatoes in a large saucepan; cover with water to 1 inch above potatoes. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer 15 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Drain. Combine potatoes, milk, 1/2 teaspoon coriander, 1/2 teaspoon cumin, 1/4 teaspoon salt, cinnamon, allspice, and ground red pepper in a medium bowl; mash to desired consistency with a potato masher.

Step 2

Combine remaining 1/4 teaspoon coriander, remaining 1/4 teaspoon cumin, bell peppers, 2 tablespoons oil, almonds, and garlic in the bowl of a mini food processor; process until smooth.

Step 3

Sprinkle pork with remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, sugar, and black pepper. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add remaining 1 tablespoon oil; swirl to coat. Add pork to pan; cook 3 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Serve pork with mashed potatoes and bell pepper sauce.

I made this tonight for dinner. The pork wasn't spiced at all and the potatoes were over spiced. Makes me wonder if the recipe is right. Some of the spice mixture on the pork would have been very nice. Won't bother making this again the way it is written.

The red pepper sauce was very good. It works well for families where one member likes food plain - so just the straight up pork chop - but the rest of us can use the flavorful sauce.

Will make again!

The sweet potatoes were good, but the pork chop and sauce were the stars of the show.  We will definitely make again and maybe even serve at a dinner party.  

Very tasty!

The sauce was really different and took a little getting used to but all in all the meal was great! I added a little brown sugar to the sweet potato mash.

I rubbed about half the spices on the pork instead of adding it all to the sweet potatoes, which turned out well. Served with green beans as pictured. Tasty!

Pretty Good

The pepper sauce was pretty good, a nice mild, smooth flavored sauce.We prefer a little more 'kick' in our sauces.  so this wasn't our favorite, but if you like your food a bit on the mild side, this is very good.  It isn't bland, it just isn't very 'spicy'

I liked this, but hubby wasn't that enthusiastic.  Probably won't make again as there are other pork chop recipes we like better.

Made to recipe except served with plain steamed green beans rather than the recommended lemony beans. OK dinner but 2 stars for labeling a pork recipe "Moroccan."
