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!
