Method

  1. Preheat the oven to fan 180C/ conventional 200C/gas 6. Wash the potatoes, but don’t bother to peel them. Cut into thickish slices then cook in boiling water for 6-8 minutes until almost tender; drain. Slice the tomatoes to the same thickness. Chop the garlic, then strip the rosemary from its stalks and chop the leaves fairly finely.

  2. Drizzle a little olive oil in the base of a shallow ovenproof dish wide enough to take the chops in one layer. Arrange rows of potatoes and tomatoes across the dish, seasoning with salt and pepper as you go and sprinkling with half the rosemary and all the garlic.

  3. Drizzle a couple more tablespoons of olive oil over the vegetables and bake for 15 minutes, then sit the pork on top, season and sprinkle with the remaining rosemary. Return to the oven for 35-45 minutes, until the pork and potatoes are tender.

Delicious recipe but the potatoes were a little underdone so the next time I boiled them for a little longer and it was much better!

Excellent, and easy. I made it on the bbq, it was too hot to use the oven or even boil the potatoes. So I didn't boil the potatoes. I added 1 onion, very thinly sliced, and arranged the layers as follows : a little bit of olive oil, onion slices, potatoe slices (raw), tomatoe slices, garlic and rosemary mix, and potatoes and tomatoes and garlic/rosemary again, then seasoning of course, a drizzle of olive oil, and covered the dish with 2 layers of foil. Then, on to the grill, with the lid closed, for approx 1 hour. Then I added the pork chops, put the foil on top again, closed the lid and on again for approx 20 minutes! Yummy! Everything was slow-roasted, absolutely delicious!

This is lovely. So simple even my cat could cook it. Beware you do not dry out the pork tho. p.s. I haven't got a cat.

Love this recipe. It's great as it does not need a lot of ingredients and still very tasty and a lot of flavours from the mixture of tomatoes, olive oil and rosemary. The only problem I encountered was the pork chops going dry so I may try turning the heat down and leaving it in for longer.

If not for anyone else, I'm leaving this for the next time I come back to this recipe since its not the first time I've made this. 750g is about 1 2/3 lbs ... 200c = 400 degrees. This recipe is worth your time.
