Pork Chops with Tomato & Blue Cheese

On 19th January 2016, This was Dinner

This went from being Lamb with tomatoes and feta to this. Mr S didn’t see any nice looking lamb chops at the market so picked up some pork. As he never knows what things are for he still bought the feta but we had some blue cheese in the fridge that needed using up. I’ll think of something to use the feta with.

You can cook the steaks however you want but I always prefer my pork finished in the oven.

Get set…

  • Trim & season some pork steaks
  • Roughly chop some tomatoes
  • Crumble some blue cheese
  • Tear up some basil.
  • Get white wine vinegar, oil & seasoning ready
  • Preheat the oven to 190°c (fan)

Throw it together…

Mix the tomatoes with the cheese, basil, vinegar and oil. Season.

Heat some oil in a pan and cook the pork for a couple of minutes each side then transfer to a baking tray and cook for 5-8 minutes, depending on the thickness of your pork. Let the pork rest for a minute or so.

Dish it up…

Serve the tomato mixture on top of the pork and drizzle with any juices. We had ours with some crusty bread.


The original recipe comes from Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s Three Good Things which is a great book. I highly recommend it.

Any thoughts?
