The weekend has arrived again! And another recipe to follow from deliciousmagazine - very easy to make and yet very tasty!
|Pork chops with shallots|
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.
|Cider and peas|
Tada~~~ the pork chop is ready for serving!
|Pot-roast pork chops|
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.
