GRACE’S GRILLED PORK CHOPS WITH PASTA & APPLE

PORK CHOPS WITH PASTA & APPLEThis sounds an odd combination I know, but wait until you taste it! It is not only surprisingly delicious, but only takes fifteen minutes or so from fridge to table.

PORK CHOPS WITH PASTA & APPLE

Ingredients  serves 4

4 bone in pork chops (organic ones from your local butcher if possible as they have so much more flavour).

English mustard

Brown sugar 2 tbspn

Salt & pepper

3 or 4 eating apples

300g dried spaghetti

To prepare/serve

Spread English mustard over one side of each thick, bone in pork chop. Then sprinkle with brown sugar and season with salt and pepper. Chop 3 or 4 apples into six segments each and lay with the chops in a roasting pan lined with silver foil. Heat the grill.

Into pan of salted boiling water, add enough spaghetti to serve four.

While cooking, grill the chops and apple until caramelised on one side. Turn over the chops and add 200ml of water and put back under grill until cooked through. If time, rest meat for a few minutes (it will definitely taste even more scrummy if you do).

Drain pasta and put onto plate. Top with pork chops and apple segments. Drizzle sauces from roasting pan directly onto the food and serve.
