1/2 cup bottled roasted red bell peppers, rinsed and drained
3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
2 tablespoons unsalted almonds
1 garlic clove
4 (6-ounce) bone-in center-cut loin pork chops
1/4 teaspoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
How to Make It
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.
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.
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.

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 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.
