  • 125 g pork loin chop, untrimmed
  • ¼ cup red sauerkraut
  • ¼ cup snow peas
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • ½ tbsp olive oil
  • Lightly salt your pork chop ahead of cooking (half a day beforehand or longer will improve the flavour and texture, but no stress if you do it just before cooking).
  • Heat a frypan to medium-high heat.
  • Using a pair of tongs to hold the chop, sear the outer fat and edges of the chop for a minute or until golden.
  • Add butter to your pan.
  • Cook the chop for approximately 3-4 minutes on each side (longer if your chops are extra thick). Place the cooked pork chop on a warmed plate and allow to rest for 2 minutes.
  • While the chop is resting, use the pan with the retained fat to cook the snow peas for 1 minute.
  • Serve the pork chop with snow peas, red sauerkraut and a drizzle of olive oil.
