Basic Kombucha Recipe
Before you prepare your pork chops, you need to make sure that you have your basic kombucha ready to go. Preparing kombucha could take 1-2 weeks, depending on your taste and the climate in which the kombucha would be growing in. There are two different fermentation process that your kombucha will go through in order to finish the recipe.
- 1 cooking pot
- Small funnel
- 1 gallon glass jar
- 6-8 ounce soda bottles, washed thoroughly and sanitized
- 3 Coffee filters, round
- 1 rubber band
Prepare the tea
Mix all Ingredients together
Now, you can add the sugar and starter tea into the brewed tea. Stir until the sugar is completely dissolved and add mixture to the glass jar. Place the Scoby inside the jar carefully and with clean hands or utensils.
Prepare for fermentations
You are ready to place the round coffee filters on the top and secure it with a rubber band. Set in a dark place in order to begin the fermentation process.
Transfer the Kombucha
Using the small funnel, pour the kombucha from the gallon sized glass jar into the six soda bottles that have been cleaned. Leave one-half inch space at the top and place the cap on.
Start Second Fermentation
Now that the kombucha is in the bottles, it's ready to go through the second fermentation. After filling the bottles and placing the caps on, place it in a dark place for three days. On the third day, you can check to see if the bottles feel rock hard. If they do, then the fermentation process is done and you have successfully made your first batch of kombucha.
Prepare Kombucha Marinated Pork Cutlets
Preparing the Pork
First, you will need to prepare the pork for marinade. To do this, lay the chops in a single layer on your baking dish. Prepare the mix containing garlic and kombucha and pour over each chop making sure to turn them once to soak them good with the marinade. Cover and refrigerate for five hours.
When you are ready to get the chops out of the refrigerator, you will then need to beat the eggs in one bowl and mix the salt, tarragon, and flour together in another bowl.
Put pork and mixture together
Place the skillet on the stove and add the lard or butter to the pan and turn the flame down to low. Bring the chops out of the refrigerator and place them in between two sheets of parchment paper and pound them down to where they are ¼ inches in thickness.
Coat the chops
Dip the chops in the egg mixture and then in the dry mixture before placing them on the skillet to fry.
