Preparation – 10 minutes + waiting time

Peel and finely chop the garlic cloves. Peel the ginger root and chop it into large pieces, so you can easily discard them after cooking. Combine the finely chopped garlic, ginger, 1 tablespoon Brandy, tamarind paste, chilli flakes and brown sugar.

Season the meat with pepper and salt and combine the pork shoulder chops with the mixture. Let them marinate for at least an hour, preferably longer to get tastier meat.

You can marinate them in the bowl, but you can also use a zip-lock bag.
