Pot-roasted Pork Chops

Pot-roasted pork chops in cider with shallots and peas - another easy weekend meal.

The weekend has arrived again! And another recipe to follow from deliciousmagazine - very easy to make and yet very tasty!


Pork chops were lied in a large roasting pan with lots of peeled whole shallots, seasoned with salt and pepper then placed into the oven for 20 minutes.

 Then cider, chopped bacon and a spoonful of blackberry jam was added and the porks were roasted for another 10 minutes.

Then finally peas were added and roasted for another 10 minutes.

Tada~~~ the pork chop is ready for serving!

The sauce was absolutely lovely with sweetness of the blackcurrent jam and shallots then a punch of apple flavour from the cider. Apple flavour and pork is always a good combination! Altough the recipe says that cider will retain the juiciness of the pork chops and prevent them from getting too dry, I still find these pork chops a bit too dry. Perhaps, next time I shall quickly saute the pork chops to lock the juices in before I put them into the oven!

Served with mashed sweet potatoes

Served with a lovely sweet potato mash. With a pinch of salt and pepper, a scoop of butter and a dash of milk creates a smooth tasty mash! A healthier alternative to mashed potatoes but still very tasty with added sweetness from the sweet potatoes.
