This dish is very good indeed BUT I suggest that you have to brown the chops in a frying pan for a few minutes a side before adding them to the tray. Doing this prevents the vegetables being overcooked AND gets a better flavour from the chops.

realy enjoyed the flavors , but as with other coments needs more veg , everyone were looking for more as were still hungry , maybe double the quantity of veg and maybe add some red onion will try this next time

This was a bit disappointing. I found that the veg needed longer and even then the garlic was still hard. The potatoes went really quickly from undercooked to mush. I cooked the pork for 17 mins but only to stop it looking so anaemic, then it ended up tough. The flavours were quite nice so I think with some tweaking I might try again, but maybe not!

This was delicious. Made it for two using boneless pork loin. Used 2 vivaldi baking potatoes, sliced into wedges. Added an orange pepper as well as red. Followed the cooking temperatures for fan oven as in recipe, but cooked veg etc for 40 mins, then added pork for 20 mins. Instead of using a foil covered roasting tin, I used a heavy, shallow metal casserole dish with lid. The fennel makes this recipe, so use it when you can.

Great combination of flavours - quick and easy to make too. Pork chops needed a little longer than the recipe stated.

We also did the same amount of veg for just two people but we found that it took much longer to cook the veg and then the pork was overcooked. Our potatoes didn't go mushy so I think this is dependant on what type you use. Also found there was still a lot of the stock mixture so looked more akin to a casserole and not a roasted dish. Nice idea but disappointed it looks nothing like the picture! Maybe we need the temperature turned up more (followed guidelines for fan oven) and the foil off for longer with veg cooked longer before pork put in.

My husband made this evening as the non cook in our house, it was lovely. Great use for fennel. Used chopped sun dried tomato as didn't have paste and fresh potato, carrot and fennel from the allotment.
