4 servings
  • Preparation time: 15 minutes

  • Ingredients
  • 4 pork chops OR
  • 450 g (1 lb) pork fillet/tenderloin
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 small onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 x 400 g tins or 1 x 28 fl oz can whole tomatoes

  • First, prepare the pork. Remove any bone and excess fat from chops. If using fillet/tenderloin, cut into four equal pieces and then flatten each piece a little by covering the pork with cling film (plastic wrap) and bashing it with a rolling pin.

  • Now melt the butter in a frying pan/skillet over a medium heat. Then add the pork, and sauté for 2 minutes on each side until golden brown.

  • Meanwhile, spread the onions over the bottom of the ovenproof dish. Cover with the tomatoes, season, and sprinkle over the sugar.

  • Place the pork on top of the tomatoes.

  • Toss the breadcrumbs and cheese together, then sprinkle over the meat.

  • Cover and bake in the centre of the oven for 45 minutes.

  • Remove the lid and continue to bake for a further 15 minutes to brown the top.

  • Serve with seasonal vegetables.
