Method

  1. Heat the butter in a casserole dish until sizzling, then fry the pork for 2-3 mins on each side until browned. Remove from the pan.

  2. Tip the bacon, carrot, potatoes and swede into the pan, then gently fry until slightly coloured. Stir in the cabbage, sit the chops back on top, add the bay leaf, then pour over the cider and stock. Cover the pan, then leave everything to gently simmer for 20 mins until the pork is cooked through and the vegetables are tender.

  3. Serve at the table spooned straight from the dish.

I loved this. I added an onion and switched the swede for parsnips (neither my husband nor I are fans of swede). I also added pepper, rosemary, and sage to the mix when adding the bay leaf. These little changes make for an extremely tasty and easy dish! I know we'll be having this one again.

I used this recipe as the basis for my St. Patrick's day dinner, but used smoked ham steaks instead of pork, layered with the vegetables in a covered casserole. I also used apple juice instead of cider and stirred three tablespoons of apple sauce in to thicken the sauce before serving. It went down very well, so will be cooking it again. A longer, slower braising time than called for in this recipe, so the flavours can fully develop and to prevent any potential toughness.

I've made this a couple of times and it's delicious and easy. This time I used red cabbage which improved the appearance. Served it with runner beans - lovely meal.

Was really disappointed in this after reading such good reviews. I thought it was pretty bland. Won't make it again.

Changed the chops to diced pork and added leek and shallots instead of cabbage. Also upped the amount of stock - 300ml and cider - 200ml lovely :)

This is my new favourite! I used carrots and chunky-cut leeks, and apple juice rather than cider. I'm not an accomplished cook but this is so easy to do.

Great mid week dinner, I removed the chop and veg from the sauce, reduced it a bit then added some cream. I also doubled the sauce ingredients and didn't add potato but added sprouts.

I made this based on the positive reviews as I felt the ingredients lacked a bit of oomph... I was not disappointed, this dish certainly did not lack in taste by any means. Very simple and I will deffintely make it again. Hubby had the leftovers the following day and said it tasted even nicer !
