Simple pork chop supper
We had pork chops for dinner the other night and in this slightly cooler weather I had totally forgotten how good they taste, and such a simple dinner to put together when you're in a rush. They take about 8 minutes each side under the grill. Here are a couple of Heath tricks for getting the crispiest and juiciest pork chops:
Heat a grill to hot! Line a grill pan with foil and sit the grate on top so the fat can drain from the chop as it cooks
Have the grill pan as close to the grill as you can (you can always move it down if it's cooking too ferociously)
Make sure we have scored the rind for you when you buy and then pour a small amount of malt vinegar along the length of the rind and finish with lots of salt rubbed into the scores if you can.
Add a spot of your preferred oil to the flesh and season with a good amount of salt and pepper. You can also add some dijon mustard at this point for some extra flavour.
Grill for approximately 8-10 minutes each side depending on how big your chop is, don't be afraid if the meat is very slightly pink inside (not raw!), this is ok.
Serve with your favourite potatoes or just a selection of really green, seasonal vegetables and some gravy if you fancy it - honestly delicious!
