Irish Pork Chops with Shallots

We made this dish last week…. a straight copy – with just slight variations – from Pork & Sons by Stephane Reynaud…. it is delicious…. and really easy to make.

Irish Pork Chops with shallots

Irish Pork Chops

Ingredients: (Serves 2)

  • A couple of knobs of butter
  • 3 shallots (or onion) – chopped
  • Pork chops
  • 3 sprigs of thyme
  • sea salt and coarsely ground black pepper

Melt one knob of butter in pan and fry the chopped shallots (onion) – cook stirring frequently for about 8 – 10 minutes until golden brown.

Melt the remaining butter in another pan .  Add the chops and cook over high heat for 5 minutes on each side, or until cooked through and the juices are caramelised.  (I did feel a little worried at this stage that they would be over cooked…. but work with it, they are delicious!)  Season with salt and pepper.

Mix in the thyme into the pan with the shallots.

We served with some creamy mashed potato 🙂

Approximate cost per serving using Oldfarm Pork – 1 chop per person – €1.90 per serving
