Ingredients
  • 1 shallot, chopped
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 level tsp mixed dried herbs (or 1 tbsp fresh thyme leaves), chopped
  • 50g bread, torn into small pieces
  • Zest of 1/2 lemon, finely grated
  • 75ml apple juice
  • 4 Asda Pork Chops
  • 1 large Granny Smith apple
  • New potaotes, to serve
  • Spring greens or cabbage, to serve
Method
  • Pre-heat the 190C/170C Fan/Gas 5. Cook the shallot in the oil, in a pan, until soft but not coloured. Tip into a bowl. Add the herbs, bread and lemon zest. Blitz with a hand-held blender until the bread is in crumbs. Add the apple juice and stir until evenly mixed.

  • Using a small, sharp knife, make a horizontal cut in the flesh of each chop, then fill the pockets with the stuffing. Put any leftover stuffing in a greased ovenproof dish and bake in the oven at the same time as the chops.

  • Fry the chops in a non-stick frying pan until browned on both sides. Transfer to a roasting tin. You will need to do this in 2 batches.

  • Core the apple and cut into 8 wedges. Cook the wedges in the pan for 1 minute, turning over halfway through, then tuck them under the chops in the roasting tin. Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes.

  • Serve with potatoes and cabbage or spring greens.
