Slow cooked pork chops with herbs & spices

Method

  • Pound 1 crushed garlic clove with the fennel and coriander seeds, 1 tbsp each rosemary and thyme, and ½ tspn salt until reasonably coarse (or chop together). Add the oil, mix well and then rub into the pork. Refrigerate for 1-3 hours, turning every now and then.
  • When ready, preheat the oven to 100°C fan forced (120°C normal).
  • Place the chops on a baking tray with any marinade and seal on top of the stove. Then add 3 sliced garlic cloves with the remaining rosemary and thyme. Toss well and cook in the oven for about 45 mins, turning once or twice (adding a little stock if drying out). Remove and set aside to rest.
  • Blanch the vegetables in plenty of lightly salted, boiling water (carrots and corn first). Then drain well and toss with the butter and ground pepper.
  • Serve the chops with the vegies on the side.
