Slow Roast Pork Chops with Apple

by therecipebank

┬áThis recipe was born after buying half a Gloucester Old Spot from a very lovely lady… So now my freezer is full and I have 18 pork chops to use (well 14 now!)

4 bone in pork chops, skin off but fat left on

1 apple, peeled and sliced

1 onion, thinly sliced

2 cloves garlic

splash white wine

1 tbsp plain flour

chicken stock (not sure quantity, maybe 500ml)

handful of rosemary

salt and pepper

Fry the onion in olive oil until soft, add the garlic and fry for 2 mins. Stir in the flour then add the wine and stir until thickened. Add the chicken stock, apples and seasoning and simmer for a while.

Meanwhile brown the pork chops in a frypan.

Put the chops into a casserole, tip the sauce on top, it should cover the chops if not add a little more stock. Place a handful of fresh rosemary on top, put the lid on and bake in the oven for 2 hours, removing the lid for the last 20 minutes.

I served with Roast potatoes and buttered broccoli. Next time I think I will add some mushrooms into the sauce with the garlic, and serve it with mashed carrots and potato.

OH WOW… never again will I buy ready made tortillas after finding this recipe. I cooked up fajitas including home made tortillas and guacamole in an hour. Happy family!

Carrot and Coriander Fritters

by therecipebank

Dinner tonight after a long day out in the cold weather exploring was a very uninspiring Carrot soup! So after seeing this recipe the other day I kept a couple of carrots back and made some of these fantastic little treats… Starter of fritters with a dollop of creme fraiche and a main of Carrot, Chilli and lentil soup with warm crusty bread, not so uninspiring after all :o)
