Mojo is one of the greatest sauces ever made. It is found in Cuba and Puerto Rico. If you've ever been to Versailles in LA, then you know exactly what I am talking about. Mojo de Ajo, literally means Mojo "of Garlic" and that is exactly what it is. Mojo is a sauce made with tons and tons of garlic, steeped in olive oil, and finished with citrus like bitter orange and lime juice. It is an awesome awesome sauce.
Anyway, I definitely wanted to have a dish on my menu that highlighted Mojo de Ajo. I worked on a pork chop dish today. It was not just any old pork chop but a "Kurobuta" pork chop. Kurobuta pigs are the prized black pigs of Japan. They are called Berkshires in English and they are one of the pigs I love deeply, the Black Pig. Well I seared up one of these beautiful chops in my cast iron, put it on top of some of my savory black beans and cilantro rice, and I dressed it with red onions and the amazing Mojo de Ajo.
Make sure you try this when the restaurant opens!
