Dinners are very much quick and easy at the moment as I’m up to my ears in sewing nativity costumes. I had a huge baking craving yesterday and had to buy some delicious lebkuchen from Lidl to calm my urge and let me get on with what seems like the 1001th shepherd outfit.
Tonight’s tea was pork chops with a cider and mustard sauce. The recipe is adapted from Nigella Express.
Pork chops with cider and mustard sauce
2 pork chops
250ml cider (I used Gayners med/dry)
50 ml single cream
2 tsp wholegrain mustard
1) Fry chops on both sides until cooked (about 5 min per side). Place on a warmed plate.
2) Deglaze pan with cider. Boil rapidly for about a minute. Stir in mustard and cream, continue to cook for a few minutes then pour over the chop.
