For this yummy dish you will need…Bell peppers (cut in half) because you’re going to stuff them with couscous, cut okra, peas & carrots, sweet corn, scallions, mushrooms, ginger, couscous and pork chops!
For the sauce: Nutmeg, Cinnamon, Ginger & Brown Sugar
Step 1: All the ingredients are pretty much in the form/ size they should be with the exception of the scallions (green onions) and mushrooms so those need to be diced.
Step 2: Follow the directions on the back of the couscous box which again is very straight forward). You boil the couscous in a pot, and it comes with its own sauce mix.
Step 3: Combine all your ingredients i.e veggies in a skillet. Add a few dashes of salt(but not too much because the couscous is already salted/ flavored). You can add your favorite herb i.e basil, I also added some creole seasoning.
Step 4: When the couscous is almost done, add it in the skillet with the veggie mix until thoroughly cooked.
When done, dish in the bell pepper (hence, stuffing).
For the sauce…Add 2 cups of water in a small pot, in addition to ginger, brown sugar, nutmeg and honey (sorry I forgot to measure but you should taste to ensure the sweetness meets your preferences) . Bring to boil.
When the sauce is thick and syrupy you know it’s ready to be used as a glaze.
Sprinkle some salt on both sides of the pork chop, and pour the glaze over it. Put it in the oven at 350F and let it bake until done ( this will take about 45mins).
