Prepare a fire with enough coals to braai the meat.


Arrange the chops in a marinating dish.


Mix all the ingredients and rub all over the chops. Leave to marinate for at least 30 minutes.


Put all the ingredients except the salt and pepper in a mixing bowl.

Mix lightly and season with salt and pepper.

Set aside.


Season the chops with salt and pepper and transfer to a folding braai grid.

Braai the chops for 15-20 minutes or until done to your liking ,turning the grid continually to prevent burning.

Serve the chops with the potato salad.

TIP: For a salad with a tangier flavour, halve the quantity of olive oil and stir 60ml (¼c) sun-dried tomato pesto into the mixture.
