Recipe for seared Pork Chops with Butternut Mash and Green Beans, topped with a Mustard Cream Sauce
4 pork chops (150g each)
1 butternut – peel & cube (1cm)
400g green beans – cut off ends
1 onion – peel & chop finely
2 tbsp wholegrain mustard
butter (from your pantry)
olive oil (from your pantry)
salt & black pepper (from your pantry)
Preparation: Prepare all ingredients as indicated above. Boil the kettle (for the butternut).
Butternut mash: Place a large saucepan of salted boiling water on high heat. Cook the butternut for 15-20 minutes until softened. Remove with a slotted spoon and transfer to a large bowl. (Reserve water in the saucepan for the green beans.) Drain any water from the butternut, then mash with a knob of butter and salt and pepper to taste.
Green beans: Place the saucepan and water you cooked the butternut in back on high heat (add more hot water if necessary). When boiling, cook the green beans for 2 minutes. Drain. Drizzle with a little olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Set aside and keep warm.
Chops: Place a large, dry frying pan on high heat. On a chopping board rub both sides of the chops with salt, pepper and olive oil. Place chops in the hot pan and sear for 3 minutes either side. Don’t forget to roast the fat edge – hold the pork chop on its edge (using tongs or 2 spoons) to crisp it up. Remove from pan and set aside.
Mustard cream sauce: Using the same pan you cooked the chops in, cook the onion, with a little salt, in a knob of butter on medium heat for 5 minutes until softened and lightly golden. Add the cream and mustard and cook for another minute.
Serve the chops on a plate with a side of butternut mash, green beans and topped with the mustard cream sauce.
