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!

  1. The new look, the layout, and the photos look amazing. You really put a lot of hard work in here. Hope the tech stuff gets straight.But I like this layout more. Easier to navigate. And this dish is calling my name. I like when people do other things with chops besides fry them.

  2. Oh, how I miss guavas. We get them in South Africa. Although we get a whole range of imported fruits from all over the world here in the UK, I haven’t seen a guava ONCE. Such a shame. You’re recipe looks delicious.

  3. I love the new blog design Ben. Very very nice. And the Guava sauce looks delicious. I had a pork chop for dinner tonight and i just wish i had some of that sauce. I’m on the hunt for fresh guavas now. :-)

  4. i know this is late, ben, but i really like the new look. much cleaner and more professional! go you. we had so many annoying technical difficulties when we changed ours too… but it all came together w/ some hard work and a long soak in the bath. this dish really looks so delicious. this sauce could go well w/ so many diff things.

  5. Whoa… this site is pretty awesome :) your layout is really well designed, and your blogs are (judging from what i’ve read) very interesting. heehee… consider yourself favorited. :-P
