Main Dishes Salsas and Sauces — By Ben on 18 December 2008
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!

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

  9. 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.
