Spicy Grilled Pork Slices

If there's one thing my brother thoroughly enjoys, it's meat. Red meat, white meat, seafood, you name it, he will have it and I hate to admit but he's a pretty great cook when it comes anything meaty. The assignments are piling up and so time is of the essence which is why my brother and I teamed up today to grill up some rather appetising pork slices. Ain't nothing wrong with sharing roles every now and then, after all, he was just as hungry as me. These pork slices are flavour-packed and juicy, definitely worth a try.

  • 700g pork chops
  • 2 tbsps cayenne pepper
  • 2 tbsps shaosing cooking wine
  • 1 tsp ground pepper

  • 1 clove of garlic, blended
  • 2 tbsps lemon juice
  • 2 tbsps paprika
  • salt to taste

I hope you're all keeping warm.
