  2. Meanwhile cook sliced mushrooms in a little melted butter until golden.
  3. When chops have had 20 mins, transfer chops from pan to serving plates.
  4. Add the mushrooms and creme fraiche to the cooking juices stiring well. When well mixed pour over chops.

This recipe had a little too much contrast and sweetness for my guests. I recommend checking the cider is sufficiently dry and adding the honey a little at a time, to taste. - 07 Jul 2010


this was a lovely idea for pork, with so few ingredients, but was far too sweet, cider and honey as a reduction is only for the very sweet toothed.. But thank you, as my girls will love it (16 and 17)...don't stop the good work, as your recipes are so easy x - 03 Mar 2012
