    Sounds lovely, I’m a big fan of pork chops but often struggle to think of interesting things to do with them. This is a great idea.

  5. Gotta remain cool for the summer with some nice clean ice drinks. These points are wonderful and I just hope everybody stays well hydrated with good refreshing clean ice in their favorite drink and celebrate how great life is!

    Found this recipe after I’d been given some pork chops (which generally I’m not a huge fan of!). Tried it out and my husband raved about the results and the pork was cooked nicely, not dry. However, I cooked the pork for 2.5 mins each side in the pan and 15mins in the oven with the lid on – did not need another 15mins in the oven (for me anyway) and was not pink inside when checked.
    The sauce was delicious and the idea of wholegrain mustard mash inspirational!

    This is the best, juicy, tasty, tender pork chops I have ever tried! I used sweet onion and medium sweet cider which balanced really well with cabbage and creme fraiche. This is very easy dish to impress!
