After launching our new cookbook ‘Bondi Harvest Balance’ we thought it would be fun to share one of our very favourite recipes with you fro the book; ‘Grilled Pork Chops and Polenta’.

This dish is all about balancing out the fats, sugars and acids. I love the indulgence of a think cut pork chop, and in this recipe I cut through the natural fattiness of the pork with a simple apple sweet and sour pan source. This dish is the kind of meal that can fit a busy mid-week family or look sexy enough for that weekend dinner party.

Taking the simple Pork Chop to the next level; Tender, organic pork glazed and topped with sweet and sour caramelized apples on a bed of polenta. YUM. Word for word Guy will show you how simple it is to make a healthy, restaurant quality meal at home.
