    4 x 170g pork chops

    Oil, for brushing Pinch of dried sage

    Freshly ground black pepper

    For the caramelized apples

    2 eating apples

    Little butter for frying

    1 tsp sugar

    For Champ Potato

    7 unpeeled potatoes

    110g spring onion

    350ml milk

    70g butter

    Salt and white pepper


    Wash the potatoes and boil them in their jackets.

    Finely chop the spring onion and put into a pot with the milk, simmer for 3 – 4 minutes and leave the onion to infuse.

    Peel the cooked potato and mash while still hot add the milk, spring onions and butter and season for taste.

    Heat the grill to its highest setting.

    Make a short cut through the fat of the pork chop and brush with oil and sprinkle with the dried sage and season. Place under the grill for 5 – 7 minutes on each side. Cut the apples into eights and remove the core.

    Melt a knob of butter in a frying pan and when it is foaming, add the apples.

    Sprinkle with the sugar and fry lightly on both sides until golden brown but not mushy.

    The sugar will caramelise, giving a toffee – like coating to the apples

    Arrange the pork chops on a large serving platter with the apples as garnish and serve the champ in a bowl to share with family and friends.
