  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. In a bowl, stir together the garlic, cumin, ginger, cardamom seeds, lemon juice, salt, and black pepper. Spread the mixture on both sides of the pork chops, and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes (longer is better). Place the potatoes into a roasting dish, and drizzle with 1 tablespoon of olive oil; sprinkle with the oregano, thyme, rosemary, and parsley. Sprinkle with salt and black pepper.
  3. Roast the potatoes in the preheated oven until tender, 20 to 25 minutes.
  4. Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a large heavy skillet over medium heat, and pan-fry the pork chops until browned on both sides, the meat is no longer pink inside, and the juices run clear, 8 to 10 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of a chop should read at least 145 degrees F (63 degrees C). Transfer the pork chops into the roasting dish with the potatoes, and bake until the thermometer reads 160 degrees F (70 degrees C), about 10 more minutes. Serve chops with potatoes.

Hi, as the submitter, the original purpose of this review was not the rating but the fact that the recipe had been changed. However, it has now been re-amended re potatoes. I hope you enjoy. Buen Provecho.

These porkchops and potatoes are fab. Excellent, perky flavour, combined with a nice salad, it's a lovely meal.

I used red potatoes cut into pieces and dried herbs for this and it turned out beautifully. I can't wait for garden potatoes and herbs to be ready so I can try this as written! Thanks for a great recipe Don.

The potatoes were the best part of this meal...very lovely flavors when roasted in the oven. I didn't have the cardamom pods, so omitted that ingredient. My pork chops had a good flavor, but the meat was on the dry side. Next time I would put the chops on top of the potatoes and cover with foil to try and keep the juices in. No comment from my husband, which means it was just OK. We love pork chops, so this recipe might just fade away.

I only made the pork chops part of this recipe. Such an easy recipe to put together and so tasty! Great food with minimal effort = 5 stars recipe! My husband liked it too and that is an added plus! Will be making this again soon. Will try with the potatoes next time!

My boyfriend and I loved it!! I didn't have the ginger root or the cardamom pods but it was still delicious !!! Awesome recipe!

This dish was wonderful. Husband isn't a huge pork fan so I try to keep his interest with flavorful dishes. He loved both the chops and the potatoes. I served with broccoli. I really liked the fresh ginger and the cardamon. Thanks, Don, for a delicious recipe. I will be making this again.
