Pork chops with spicy guava sauce


I can’t believe it has been almost a week since the last time I posted anything on this blog. I have spent the last several days trying to fix technical problems on this blog. One thing I can say right now is that I am not happy at all with my hosting service company. I was happy with them until this very crappy experience. I really don’t want to go through anything like that again so I might be changing services soon.

Anyway, I thought this experience was the perfect opportunity to change the blog around a little bit. I am still working on it so somethings might look funky, but I hope to finish this little big project today. I just wanted to share this amazing dinner I had the other night. I found some guavas at the Mexican market last week and I bought several pounds. Guavas are my favorite winter fruit and I hadn’t had one in many years:


Aren’t they beautiful? I really missed them. I love them so much I could eat them raw. In fact, I ate almost half of them raw. The other half I used them for empanadas and a spicy guava sauce for pork chops. The recipe is very simple. I only replaced the pears from this recipe for guavas, added 1 TBSP of honey and served them over grilled pork chops. It was a very simple recipe that blended the sweet and spicy in a delicious sauce. If you can find guavas were you live. I really recommend you try them! I am sorry if this post is kinda short, but I really want to get this thing finish today. I will post more guava stuff soon.


¡Buen provecho!

  • I love the look of the site. This meal sounds so exotic. Lovely.

  • It looks lovely, Ben. I adore guavas, too.

  • Pork chops with guava deliciousness. Great plate!

  • I agree. I love the look too, Ben. I’m inspired to do something about mine now lol And I love love love love love guavas.

  • Wow, the layout looks really nice! The color and lines are sleeker. I think the page loads a bit quicker, too. I hope the hosting troubles end soon, Ben.

    Excellent sauce. What I enjoy the most about your recipes is how you easily incorporate fruit into entrees, especially those served alongside meat.

  • Love the new blog design amigo! As for the hosting company, you and I use the same people. Let me guess. some spammers broke into your backend and redirected your site to their spammy web page. Happened to me 5 times! But I got them! If you want to talk more about this email me.

    As for the guavas I think you’ve done a great job with that sauce and pairing it with the pork chops.

  • I love this pork dish with your personal twist on it Ben:D
