Sriracha Grilled Chops with Braised Broccoli

Once again, Sriracha Hot Chilli Sauce proved to be a very versatile ingredient in the kitchen.

Had a good portion of an hour to spare, and I though - what better way to start the week than to make myself a scrumptious meal. The hardest part of the whole preparation was to decide where to begin.

Well, I like to think that if you don't know where to start, start everywhere! So I took out everything that I had at hand, and got busy.

1. Marinate with a dash of everything
* Lee Kum Kee Char Siew Sauce
* Sriracha Hot Chilli Sauce
* Oyster Flavoured Sauce
* Light Soya Sauce
* Dark Soya Sauce
* Sesame Seed Oil
* Finely Chopped Onions

2. Massage the chops to make it aroused and ready.

3. Let it sit for a while (about the time it takes to get your laundry from your room, load it into the washing machine, and fiddle with the dials to start it washing)

4. Grill on medium-high heat (flip occassionally) for.. err... proceed with the broccoli part. When u're done with the broccoli, chops should be almost ready la.

Braised Broccoli:
1. Cut off hard/rotten parts of the broccoli. Wash and strain.

2. Put a pot of water to boil. When boiling, add some salt.

3. Throw broccoli in. Reduce the heat. Cover. Let it simmer for 5-10 mins (dun really know how long. I just agak-agak oni).

4. Strain the broccoli, put in bowl, add some butter and mix well to coat the broccoli with melted butter. Add just a tiny dash of salt and some pepper to taste.

5. Serve on plate, and move on with the toppings. (have u flipped the chops yet? don't want to have half burnt, half raw dinner).

6. Stir fry some onions and mushrooms (a little mince meat would be nice), flavoured with a little Oyster Sauce and light soy sauce.

7. when done, pour generously over the braised broccoli. Sprinkly some sesame seed oil over the dish.

* Your chops should be (almost) ready by now.


There you have it, the Sriracha Grilled Chops with Braised Broccoli. And it cost me less than half the price of a meal at McDonalds. ;)

Disclaimer: author is not an experienced cook, but likes to pretend so. Above information should be taken with a pinch of salt (and a dash of Hot Sauce), and not treated as a hard-and-fast recipe/guide.

Of course, I couldn't resist coating everything in Hot Sauce ;)
