We NEVER Get Sick of Moroccan Flavors!

Ever since I started experimenting with Moroccan flavors, we just can't seem to get enough! I marinated some pork chops in a spice mixture overnight and it came out SO flavorful! If you're short on time (or forgot), 30 minutes on the counter works too. I also added apples and raisins and it was the perfect fall meal!


1 tsp ground cloves
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp ground coriander
1/2 tsp cayenne
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
2 pork chops
1 Tbsp olive oil
1/4 c onion, chopped
1 apple, peeled and chopped
1/4 c raisins
1/2 c apple juice
1 Tbsp butter
Couscous, for serving


1. Combine cloves, paprika, cumin, coriander and cinnamon in a bowl. Add half of the mixture to a resealable bag with the pork. Seal and shake until well-coated. Marinate the meat for at least 30 minutes to overnight in the fridge. Reserve remaining spice mixture.

2. Heat oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Brown pork 4 minutes per side. Remove and keep warm.

3. Add onion and cook for 5 minutes. Add apple, raisins and juice. Bring to a boil and deglaze. Add pork back and turn heat down to low. Cover and simmer 5 minutes, until pork is cooked through. Remove pork to serving platter.

4. Stir in reserved spice mixture and butter. Turn heat up to high and boil until sauce thickens, 2 minutes. Serve with pork and couscous.
