Ingredients

  • 6 small turnips, trimmed and halved
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • olive oil
  • 4 pork chops, fat trimmed if you prefer
  • a handful of leaves sage
  • 2 oranges, grated zest of 1 and juice of both

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat the oven to 200c/fan 180c/gas 6. Boil the turnips for 5 minutes then drain. Fry the onion in a little olive oil and tip into a baking dish. Add the turnips and season. Fry the chops briefly in the same pan over a high heat just to colour them and put on top of the onions and turnips, season well.
    Tuck the sage leaves around the chops and pour over the orange juice and zest. drizzle over a little more oil and bake for 20-30 minutes or until the chops are cooked through.
