Alison Hammond’s Pork Chop Recipe


  • 4 x pork chops, nice and thick, with the rind left on
  • 2tbsp all purpose seasoning
  • 1tsp ginger powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1tsp onion powder
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 1 pepper, sliced
  • 1 – 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tbsp gravy browning
  • 1 x pork stock cube
  • 2tbsp tomato puree
  • 600ml hot water
  • Gravy granules or cornflour, to thicken if necessary
  • 500g sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into even sized chunks
  • 25g butter
  • 400g broccoli, cut into florets and par boiled for 1 minute
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • pinch of chilli flakes
  • 1tsp toasted sesame seeds
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Mix the marinade in a bowl, pour over the chops and massage into the meat – leave overnight in the fridge if you have time
  2. Heat a casserole dish or dutchie pot and take the pork chops out of the marinade – brush off any excess marinade. Sear the pork chops all over so they get a really good colour on them, I like to do this as it helps make your sauce.
  3. Add the marinade to the pan along with the onions and peppers, then mix in a stock cube and the water. Place the lid on and simmer the chops for 1 hour, until soft and tender so they get juicy and succulent. Add some gravy granules or cornflour to thicken the sauce, if necessary.
  4. Meanwhile, make the sweet potato mash – carefully place the sweet potatoes in a pan of boiling salted water. Bring to a simmer and cook for about 20 minutes, or until cooked through and tender. Drain well and the mash with salt, pepper and the butter.
  5. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a wok or large frying pan. Add the broccoli and stir fry for a minute or so. Sprinkle over the sesame oil, chilli flakes and sesame seeds and mix well.
  6. Serve the chops with the sweet potato mash and sesame broccoli
