Kurobuta pork tomahawk racks are bone-in pork racks with extra-long bones for a truly stunning presentation. Here we’ve paired them with a ginger compound butter and lightly blackened roasted broccolini.

INGREDIENTS
  • Ginger Butter
  • 1/2lb Unsalted Butter, softened
  • 1 tsp Grated Fresh Ginger
  • ½ tsp Sea Salt
  • 1 tsp Lemon Zest
  • ½ tsp Freshly Cracked Black Pepper
  • ¾” Cube Candied/Crystallized Ginger, minced
  • Broccolini
  • 2 bunches Broccollini, woody ends removed
  • 3 tbsp Olive Oil
  • ½ tsp Salt
  • ½ tsp Red Chile Flakes

DIRECTIONS

1

Cut the kurobuta pork tomahawk rack into four 2-bone chops. Season them liberally with salt.
2

Optional (But Recommended): Do this the day before you’re planning on serving the chops and put them in a deep dish, uncovered, on the bottom shelf of your fridge to air dry.

  • Make the Ginger Butter:
1

Mash together the ginger butter ingredients to make a compound butter. Spread the butter on parchment paper or plastic wrap into a long cylinder. Wrap tightly & chill thoroughly in the fridge.
2

Preheat your oven to 500°F.

  • Blacken the Broccolini:
1

Mix together the olive oil, salt & chile flakes. Toss the broccolini in this mixture. Put the broccolini on a baking dish with a lip. Pour a ¼ cup of water in the dish. Move the dish to the oven and roast the broccolini until it’s just starting to blacken on some of the edges.
2

Reduce the oven temperature to 400°F.
3

Sear the pork chops in a hot, oiled oven-safe cast iron skillet or frying pan, until browned on all sides.
4

Move the pan to the oven and roast the chops until they reach an internal temperature of 140°F.
5

Remove the pork chops from the stove & let them rest, loosely covered with foil, for 10-15 minutes.
6

Serve the pork chops, each topped with a coin slice of the ginger butter, alongside the broccolini.
