Recipe: TFIF (Thank-fully it’s Friday!) One Pot Pork Chops

It’s Friday!

Picture the scene….. you want to go out, he wants to stay in. You’re riding the friday feeling but he’s feeling a night on the sofa with a good bottle of wine. You want a take away but he wants good old fashioned meat and potatoes. Aaaaaargh!! So what’s the compromise?

Don’t panic!

Why not agree on happy hour at the pub and then head home for an intimate dinner chez vous. Try this one pot wonder and take the whole dinner issue off the table, so to speak, as minimal effort required for delicious results.

One Pot Pork Chops

Ingredients: 2 good sized pork chops, 1 onion, 1 clove garlic, 2 sticks of celery (optional), sprig of sage leaves, new potatoes, olive oil.

Preparation:10 mins prep + c. 1 hour cooking

  1. In a casserole dish large enough to fit your pork chops, pour in a small slug of olive oil and then place your pork chops in. (Don’t put too much oil as chops tend to be fatty enough)
  2. Chop the onion, celery, garlic and sage and sprinkle on top.
  3. Cover with tin foil and place in a pre-heated oven at a low temperature of 165 degrees.
  4. Take enough new potatoes for 2 people and half them lengthways.
  5. Parboil in salted water for c. 5-10 mins.
  6. Add in around the edges of the casserole dish re-cover with tin foil.
  7. Leave to cook slowly for 1 hour and then remove tin foil for further 10 mins to allow both meat and potatoes to turn golden.

Enjoy with a good bottle of wine. Happy Friday!
