Method

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 200°C. Prepare all ingredients as indicated above.

Step 2

Place the butternut and thyme on a tin foil lined tray, drizzle over olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Roast for 25-30 minutes, until golden and cooked through.

Step 3

Place a few glugs of olive oil in a large frying pan on medium – high heat. Add the chops to the hot pan but don’t overcrowd the pan, rather cook in batches. Cook on both sides for 3-5 minutes, depending on the thickness of the chops. Remember to also roast the fat edge – hold the pork chop on its edge for about 2 minutes (using tongs or 2 spoons) to crisp it up. Add the butter and sage in the last minute of cooking. Spoon the butter over the chops. Place the chops and sage butter on a plate and cover with tin foil and leave to rest.

Step 4

Wipe out the pan, place on a medium – high heat. When hot drizzle a little olive oil, add the garlic and cook for 1 minute. Then add the cabbage and butter to the pan and sauté for 3 minutes until softened. Season to taste.

Step 5

Serve a pork chop with some sage butter, roast butternut and sautéed cabbage.
