Pork Chops with Vanilla and Pink Peppercorns

Pork Steaks with Vanilla and Pink Peppercorns

Bought these pink peppercorns and just wanted to use them straightaway, luckily there was some pork reduced .

Pink peppercorns are not true peppercorns but similar tasting berries which have a delicate and fragrant, combining them with fresh vanilla pods gives and sweet spicy flavour.

Served with mashed turnips , I have decided I like turnips now which is lucky cos the vegebox is entering the root vegetable quarter, definitely need peeling though since the skin is like elephant hide.

    That’s an interesting combination, I wouldn’t have thought of using vanilla in such a way. I love pink peppercorns, they’re pretty as well as tasty.
