  1. Combine 1 tablespoon olive oil, tomato paste, cumin, coriander, hot pepper sauce, and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon in a resealable plastic bag. Add pork loin chops to the bag; seal and shake until well-coated. Chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
  2. Heat remaining olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add marinated pork loin chops and cook until cooked through, about 6 minutes per side.
  3. Bring chicken broth to a boil in a medium saucepan. Stir in couscous, dried apricots, green onions, turmeric, and 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon. Turn heat to low; cover and let simmer until liquid has been absorbed, 5 to 7 minutes. Fluff couscous with a fork and stir in cilantro.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Harissa may be used instead of tomato paste and Tabasco sauce.

Tasted fine spice wise. Definitely needed SALT

My family loves this recipe! Super easy and flavorful for a no-fuss dinner.

Very good flavour! I used a milder hot pepper sauce but next time will use a hotter one. The couscous side dish was really good too. #AllrecipesAllstarsCanada #Facelessnomore
