Pork chops with black pudding and apple
Finding myself at home with black pudding, pork steaks, granny smiths and an onion I came up with this one-pan wonder... 2 x pork steaks or chops 1 red onion 1 granny smith or cooking apple 1/2 black pudding ring 4 cloves of garlic olive oil salt and pepper Preheat the oven to 180 C (150C for fan assisted) Quarter the onion and the apple (after de-coring)and scatter in a baking tray Skin the black pudding and cut into 2 inch pieces Don't peel the garlic cloves, simply squash slightly with the flat of a heavy knife and add to the tray Place the pork chops on top of the onion, apple and black pudding, drizzle with a little olive oil and season generously Depending on the thickness of your steaks or chops, it will be ready in around 15-20 minutes. Take the pork out to rest and give the rest of the ingredients a final blast. The juices make a nice sauce if you drain off and reduce slightly Enjoy!
