Ingredients

  • Olive oil
  • 1 very finely chopped shallot
  • 1 crushed garlic clove
  • 40g spinach, blanched in boiling water and excess liquid squeezed out
  • 30g roughly chopped sun-dried tomatoes
  • Finely grated zest of 1 lemon
  • 50g soft goat’s cheese
  • 2 British free-range bone-in pork chops
  • 1 lightly beaten large free-range egg
  • 60g dried breadcrumbs
  • Vegetable oil
  • Baby leaf salad and lemon wedges, to serve

Method

  1. Heat the oven to 180°C/160°C fan/gas 4. Heat a glug of olive oil in a small frying pan over a medium heat and fry the chopped shallot for 5-6 minutes until soft. Add garlic and fry for another minute, then remove to a small mixing bowl. Add the blanched spinach, chopped sun-dried tomatoes, lemon zest and goat’s cheese with a pinch of salt and pepper, then mix well to combine.
  2. Remove the outer fat from the pork chops, then cut a slit along the side of each chop to form a pocket. Stuff the pockets carefully with the goat’s cheese mixture. Put the beaten egg on a lipped plate and breadcrumbs on another. Coat the pork chops in the egg, then the breadcrumbs.
  3. Heat a glug of vegetable oil in a medium frying pan over a medium heat, then fry the pork chops for 3 minutes on each side until golden. Put the chops on a small baking tray and roast in the oven for 15-20 minutes until piping hot and cooked through. Serve with a baby leaf salad and lemon wedges to squeeze over.
