- April 2011
- Serves 6
- Hands on time 40 mins, plus 30 mins to reheat and finish
This pot-roasted pork recipe is a simple make-ahead main course that produces succulent meat every time – you’ll need a 500ml bottle of scrumpy cider.
- 15.3g (4.5g saturated)
- 10.7g (6.9g sugars)
- 6 bone-in pork chops
- 400g whole shallots
- 4 fresh rosemary sprigs
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 500ml scrumpy cider
- 4 smoked streaky bacon rashers, chopped
- 1 tbsp redcurrant jelly
- 300g frozen petit pois
- Preheat the oven to 200°C/fan180°C/gas 6. Put the chops, shallots and rosemary in a roasting tin. Season, drizzle with the oil and roast for 20 minutes until golden.
- Add the cider and bacon, stir in the redcurrant jelly, then return to the oven for 10 minutes.
- Cool completely, then spoon into a suitable container and freeze.
- Thaw completely, then tip back into a roasting tin. Cover the tin with foil and reheat for 20 minutes. Remove the foil, stir in the peas and cook for 10 minutes until piping hot. Discard the rosemary stalks. Serve with the mash and gratin.
To cook without freezing, add the peas at the end of step 2, then cook for 10 more minutes and serve. Soak the shallots in boiled water for 10 minutes to make the skins easier to peel.
