    One-Pan Pork Chops with Sweet Plum Sauce

    Juicy pork chops are cooked with English plums and fresh ginger and served with a sweet sauce to make this effortless seasonal supper.

    • Preparation time: 15 minutes
    • Cooking time: 25 minutes
    • Total time: 40 minutes 40 minutes

    Serves: 4


    • 4 Waitrose British Pork Loin Chops
    • 8 English plums, washed, quartered and stones removed
    • 2 tbsp light brown soft sugar
    • 2.5cm piece fresh root ginger, peeled and finely grated
    • 1 tbsp olive oil
    • 125ml dry white wine or apple juice
    • 25g butter


    1. Using sharp scissors, make several cuts into the fat of each chop, then season them well. Place the plums in a bowl with the sugar and ginger and stir to coat.
    2. Heat the oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat. Add the chops and cook for 5-6 minutes on each side until golden. Add the plum quarters and any juices. Cook for 2-3 minutes until the plums are soft and the chops are cooked through. Pierce the chops with a skewer: the meat is cooked when the juices run clear.
    3. Leave half the plums in the pan. Place the rest with the chops on a plate and cover to keep warm. Add the wine or apple juice to the pan and bring to the boil, stirring. Simmer for 4 minutes to reduce by half.
    4. Turn off the heat, add the butter to the sauce and stir until melted. Season to taste and serve with the chops, noodles and stir-fried pak choi.

    Cook's tips

    Cutting into the fat of the chop before cooking will help it to brown evenly without curling.

    Drinks recommendation

    The fruity, aromatic flavours here are well matched by a rich, slightly spicy but fresh New World wine.
