Pork chops with grape agrodolce

Pork chops with grape agrodolce

Agrodolce is a delicious sweet-and-sour Italian condiment that goes with almost everything. It’s brilliant with the pork here, but make a double batch to eat with chicken, duck or roasted veg too, or to perk up sandwiches.

Ingredients

  • tbsp sunflower oil
  • 1 shallot, finely chopped
  • 5 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • tbsp clear honey, plus extra to taste
  • 100g Essential Seedless Grapes (green or red), halved
  • 2 Essential British Pork Chops
  • ½ x 260 pack, Essential Spinach
  • Mashed potato, to serve

Method

  1. Heat ½ tbsp oil in a medium pan over a medium heat and fry the shallot with a pinch of salt for 5 minutes, until softened. Add the vinegar and honey, stir together then cook for 5 minutes over a high heat to thicken the sauce. Add the grapes and cook for 5 minutes more, stirring occasionally, until the grapes have softened slightly. Taste and add a little more honey if liked. Set aside.

  2. Heat a frying pan over a medium heat. Coat the pork chops with the remaining 1 tbsp oil and season. Sit the chops, fat-side down, in the pan for 2 minutes until golden, then fry for 4-5 minutes on each side, until cooked through and no pink meat remains. Transfer to a plate to rest. Meanwhile, return the pan to a low heat and cook the spinach in the rendered pork fat for 1-2 minutes, until wilted. Reheat the agrodolce over a low heat and serve with the pork chops, spinach and mashed potato.
