Weeknight Meals: Grilled Pork Chops, Broccoli and Garlic White Beans

Grilled Pork Chops, Broccoli and Garlic White Beans

This one of my favourite, 'on the table in 15 minutes' meals, inspired by one of Jamie Oliver's recipes. The garlic beans are a perfect compliment to the salty pork and crunch of the blanched broccoli. For a extra bite add in some fresh chili when cooking the beans.


Serves 4

  • 14oz broccoli (cut into florets)
  • 4 x 7oz thick pork chops
  • 2 garlic cloves (chopped)
  • 2 deseeded red chilies (sliced) - optional
  • 2 x 15oz tins of cannellini beans
  • 1 lemon
  • olive oil
  • salt
  • pepper

Step 1: Drizzle your pork chops with a bit of oil and season them with salt and pepper. Place the chops in a hot griddle pan turning 2 minutes a side for 10 minutes, until juicy and cooked through.

Step 2: Place a separate saucepan over a medium heat, add a spot of oil and cook the garlic for a minute and add the drained cannelini beans (and chilies if you are using them) and any fat from the griddle pan.

Step 3: Fill a saucepan with boiling water, season with salt and add the broccoli and blanch for 2-3 minutes, drain and allow them to steam.

Step 4: Plate up the beans, broccoli and serve with a pork chop.
