Italian Pork Chop with white beans

porknbeans

A nice thick griddled pork chop, oozy herby cannellini beans what’s not to like here, I have always professed a love of good simple rustic cooking, nice and frugal, but using quality ingredients and packed with flavour.

I rubbed the thick pork chop with a clove of garlic, and sprinkled it with thyme and sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, and placed on a medium hot griddle pan to sear. Cooking both sides until cooked through, about 4/5 minutes a side.

I heated a tin of cannellini beans through with a chopped clove of garlic, a few sprigs of thyme and some salt and pepper, mushing with a potato masher till creamy, adding some good quality extra virgin olive oil just before serving.

Rest the meat on top of the beans so the juices enrich the beans.

  1. I love the combination of white beans and pork…either a chop like yours or pork sausages.

    Looks wonderful, I still have some pork chops in the freezer from the pigs we reared last year and think this would really do them justice. Interested to read that you were a vegetarian for years – I didn’t eat meat (scoffed lots of fish and seafood) for over 25 years until keeping our own pigs. Totally agree re just savouring well-reared meat in moderation.

  5. Looks superb – such a great combo. Coincidentally, I did a similar thing with a rib of beef and butter beans over the weekend.
