In a little chopper place ginger, 1 tablespoon olive oil, garlic and rosemary leaves and blitz them together.

Meanwhile, preheat frying pan with oil to medium-high heat. Add the pork chops and season them with salt, pepper and cayenne pepper. Fry them for 4 minutes per side or until they caramelize.
