Ingredients

  • 4 pork chops, well trimmed

To Cook

Place the chops in a shallow dish. Combine the marinade ingredients and then pour it over the chops.  Allow to marinate for 20 minutes if you have time.

Heat a little oil in a frying pan.  Shake the marinade off the chops and add them to the pan.  Reserve the marinade.  Brown the chops on both sides. Then add the reserved marinade to the pan along with 100mls water.  Cover with a lid or tin foil and allow to simmer for about 15 minutes.

Remove the chops from the pan and keep warm.  Bring the juices in the pan to the boil and allow them to thicken.  This will take about 5 minutes.

Serve the chops with the sauce, some sautéed pak choi and colcannon.
