About Me

My photo
Welcome to my ScandinAsian food blog. A blog about what I like to make in my little Norweigan kitchen, from homemade meals to fun creative sandwiches. My parents gave me the name Sorieya, a Cambodian name, which means sun. I'm originally from the United States. Now I'm currently living in Norway, married to a Norwegian man with 3 beautiful children. It's hard being away from my family back in the States and I miss them everyday. I am not an artist but I love making fun sandwiches for my kids. I am not a professional chef but I love to cook and I love being in the kitchen. I love introducing my children to different kind of international food, introducing food from my childhood and explaining to my kids the history about their culture and food. I love spending those quality time together teaching my little ones how to make bread, Khmer food, and teaching me Norwegian. My Norwegian isn't that great but I do understand just the basics but speaking it, that's another story.

Tamarind pork chop and kimchi

Tonight's dinner I made Asian seasoned pork chops served with kimchi, spring rolls, and hot jasmine rice. My kimchi and pork went so well together.

Tamarind pork chops

1/2 cup water
2 clove minced garlic
1/2 cup minced lemon grass
2 tablespoons tamarind juice
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons fish sauce
2 tablespoon palm sugar
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 tablespoon black pepper
1 tablespoon paprika or chili powder
1/2 tablespoon seasoning salt
2 lb pork chops

In a blender add all ingredients except for pork chops and blend well for 2-3 seconds.
Put pork chop in a large container. Pour marinade sauce over pork chops, rub sauce on both side of pork chops, cover container with lid and refrigerate over night. Grill pork chops on a grill, medium/high temperature or fry in skillet, adding 1 or 2 tablespoon olive oil and heat on medium/high and cook chops for 7-9 minutes on each side until golden brown.

I found a great recipe for Kimchi at

I will definitely make it again.
