This is a big favourite of both mine and my husband. Its easy to prepare (don't tell anyone!) as it sits in the oven for 45-60 mins leaving you plenty of time to paint your nails, have a bubble bath and even a glass of white wine !!
When my husband comes home the house smells delicious. The pork stays very moist and the flavour from the herbs is wonderful. I usually serve it with potato gratin (see - Here's one I made Earlier) and some steamed greens. Ingredients
olive oil 4 bay leaves
85g butter 6 sprig thyme
4 pork loins 2 cloves garlic
8 small onions - sliced 1 bunch sage
Heat the oven to 180 C.
Put about a tbsp oil and 25g butter in a pan and heat it until bubbling slightly.
Put the pork in and brown on both sides. This only takes about a minute, then set aside in a dish.
Add 25g butter and a tbsp oil to the pan and sauté the onions for about 10-15 mins until almost caramelized.
Cover with the onions and sprinkle with the thyme, sage and sliced garlic cloves and one bay leaf on each chop.
Dot the remaining butter on the top.
Cover with foil and cook for about 45-60 mins at 180-200 degrees (depending on oven)
