This French-feeling comfort food is so quick and easy to prepare, but yet will be filling enough that one might think it took longer than it did to create :) From Nigella Express. (which by the way, on the show she prepare gnocchi on the side which should take only a couple of minutes to boil--later, you can toss them with the remainder of the sauce)

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 (1/2 lb) pork chop, about 1-pound total weight
  • 2 teaspoons infused oil
  • 12 cup hard alcoholic cider
  • 1 tablespoon whole grain mustard
  • 13 cup heavy cream

Directions

  1. Cut the fat or rind off the chops, and then bash them briefly but brutally with a rolling pin between 2 pieces of cling film/plastic wrap to make them thinner.
  2. Heat the oil in a pan, and then cook the chops over a moderately-high heat for about 5 minutes a side.
  3. Remove them to a warmed plate.
  4. Pour the cider into the pan, still over the heat, to deglaze the pan.
  5. Let it bubble away for a minute or so then add the mustard and stir in the cream.
  6. Let the sauce continue cooking for a few minutes before pouring over each plated pork chop.
  7. If you're having gnocchi with, make sure you turn them in the pan to absorb any spare juices before adding them to your plates.
