  • Mix the salt and sugar together really well.
  • Spoon half evenly over the 4 chops.
  • Turn the chops over and repeat with the other half of the mix, then leave for 20 minutes, turning again after 10 minutes.
  • After 20 minutes, rinse off under cold running water and pat really dry in kitchen towel.
  • Heat a large frying pan with a little oil, the dust each chop with a little starch on both sides, don’t go mad, just a light dusting.
  • Place straight into the hot oil and gently cook for 5-6 minutes, turn over and cover loosely with a little foil and pop under a hot grill or in the oven for a further 5-6 minutes.
  • Once just cooked remove the pan from the oven, and leave to rest for 10 minutes under the foil.
  • Serve.

Phil's Tips

If cooking chops with no bone, there is no need to pop under the grill or in the oven, just cook through in the frying pan.

    I followed this recipe to the letter and my husband says it is the worst pork chop I have ever cooked. I normally cook mine in the oven!
