This morning I took out some pork chops from the freezer without the faintest idea or inspiration about how to prepare them for dinner. The cold weather helped. By early afternoon I had come to crave a warm, hearty stew though I wasn't quite sure about the suitability of pork chops for this. I decided to give it a go using some cellery hearts and beans. The result was excellent. Try it out for yourself!
To feed 4 friends:
4 pork chops
1 can of tomatos
1 can of Cannellini beans
2 washed and chopped cellery hearts
2 peeled and chopped red onions
2 peeled and chopped cloves of garlic
salt and pepper
1. Heat some oil in a big pot. Add the onions and fry till golden. Add the pork chops and garlic. Sprinkle with 2 tablespoonfuls of sage and 1 tablespoonful of paprika. Fry for a few minutes.
2. Add the chopped celery hearts. Fry for another couple of minutes. Drain the beans and add together with the canned tomatos.
3. Bring it to a boil then reduce the heat and let it simmer for at least 30 minutes with a lid on.
I served the stew with boiled potatos, but this dish would go well with rice, bread or maybe even couscous.
