Method

  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Put the potatoes, fennel, pepper, thyme and garlic in a large roasting tin. Mix together the tomato paste and stock, then pour into the pan. Tightly cover with foil and cook for 30 mins. Take out of the oven and increase the temperature to 220C/200C fan/gas 7.
  2. Remove the foil and place the pork in the roasting tin, nestling in between the veg. Season well and return to the oven for 15-20 mins more or until golden brown and cooked through. Serve with the pan juices drizzled over.

A little watery so required a bit longer cooking but really tasty, loved the combination of flavours.

Made this last night and was pleasantly surprised by the outcome. The pork chops definitely took longer to cook than the time suggested in the recipe but all in all it was worth the time and very little effort.

Really yummy. I used pork steaks because we prefer them to chops. They didn't dry out. Also I didn't have sundried tomato paste so I used ketchup: still good. And I added green beans when I put the pork in. I would lilke to try different combinations of ingredients now. It isn't that quick (pork steaks took 20-25 mins to cook) but it is easy and yummy.

A really great recipe, very, very easy to prepare and really tasty!
My only recommendation would be to double the amount of vegetables as suggested, because for two people we were still left hungry at the end.

We really enjoyed this recipe, but as Belkey said that the potatoes had disintegrated I used new potatoes, cut into halves or quarters depending on the size. It turned out really well.

Took longer than stated to brown the chops, consequently everything else was just mush. Not for us sorry.

Sorry but it's not quick and the vegatables as don't cook evenly. The veg make an interesting side dish but it doesn't work with the meat cooked in the same dish. If I did it again I'd cook the meat separately.

I made this for 2, but with the same amount of veggies as suggested for 4. We really enjoyed it, but my only complaint was that the potatoes were really mushy and disintergrated, so I would chop those into large chunks next time.

Great simple and quick recipe; minimal preparation and perfect for that mid week rush. I didn't have any fennel and used aubergines and courgettes and added rosemary to my dish. The pork chops came out a bit dry; does anyone know how to avoid that? Did I over cook them?
The flavours were lovely though; i reckon I'll make it with some mash potatoes next time and pour all the juices from the roasting dish onto them.

This is a really tasty and easy meal to make. Just bung it altogether and sit back.

Very tasty one-pot but I'll watch the chops more carefully next time as mine dried out a bit.

I didn't have any fennel so used courgettes and aubergine chopped into medium size chunks.
The flavour the sundried tomato paste gave the vegetables was really lovely.
I will definately cook this again. Next time will try with lamb chops or chicken.
