  • 1 ml dried thyme
  • 4 spring onions, chopped
  • 1-2 red chillies, seeded and chopped
  • 10 ml brown sugar

Method
Chops:
Blend the spices, thyme, onions, chillies, sugar and oil together in a food processor. Add enough sunflower oil to form a paste. Spread over the chops and leave to marinate for a minimum of 30 minutes or longer if possible.

Squeeze the juice of the lemon over the chops, then cook on a griddle pan or on the braai for a few minutes on each side until cooked through.

Salad:
Cut the corn off the cob and mix together with the remaining salad ingredients. Serve with the chops and the salad dressing.
