Recipe: Pork chops and Pardo’s-style salad

Pork chops are pork chops, no explanation required. I don’t have them often because I usually buy cheaper cuts for slow cooking but I had a sudden craving for chops that I couldn’t ignore. Mum used to serve them with rice and applesauce and, if I remember correctly, she would throw in a bit of Peruvian Russian-style salad (beetroot, potato, green beans, peas, apple, avocado, mayo) in the rare occasions she remembered we should eat vegetables, too. I was planning on making the same exact “Russian” salad to go with my chops but laziness struck and I ended with a version closer to one of the salads served in a famous Peruvian rotisserie chicken restaurant (Pardo’s Chicken).

I bought my chops from Melanda Park who fortunately have returned to Eveleigh Markets after a long absence. Please don’t go away again, guys.
