Butter-basted sage pork chops with beetroot purée and garlic chard

Sweet, earthy beetroot is a great match for the mellow richness of a buttery pork chop. It also makes a far more dramatic splash on the plate than your average potato

Ingredients

  • 500g raw beetroot, peeled weight, roughly chopped
  • 1 tbsp creamed horseradish sauce - check if your sauce is gluten free if required
  • 2 tbsp rapeseed oil
  • 50g unsalted butter
  • 1 x 500g pack of 2 thick-cut pork chops
  • 12 large sage leaves
  • 3 garlic cloves, finely sliced
  • 200g rainbow chard, roughly chopped

Step by step

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C, fan 180°C, gas 6. Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil and cook the beetroot for 15-20 minutes, or until tender. Drain and put in a food processor with the creamed horseradish. Blitz until smooth and season to taste. Keep warm.
  2. While the beetroot is simmering, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil and 30g of the butter in an ovenproof frying pan and fry the pork chops for 3-4 minutes, turning once, until just turning golden, then brown the fat side, too. Add the sage to the pan and baste the chops with the butter. Transfer to the oven for 10 minutes, until cooked through. Remove from the oven, cover and leave to rest for 5 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, heat the remaining oil and butter in a deep frying pan and fry the garlic for 2 minutes, until it releases its flavour but doesn’t colour. Add the chard and continue to fry for 3-4 minutes, until the chard has wilted.
  4. Serve the pork chops with the beetroot purée and garlicky chard, spooning over the sage butter.
