Pork Chops with Fennel

    35 minutes

    The aniseed flavour of fennel compliments pork very well. A good side dish with this is sauteed cabbage or bok choy.

    Serves: 4 

    • 4 pork loin chops
    • 2 tablespoons garlic salt
    • 1 tablespoon fennel seed
    • 250ml white wine

    Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:35min 

    1. Sprinkle garlic salt on both sides of the pork chops.
    2. Pour a little olive oil into a frying pan. Put the pork chops in the frying pan and place fennel seeds on top of the pork chops. Ten to 15 fennel seeds per chop will do. Let the underside of the pork chop brown, then turn over. Once both sides are browned flip again.
    3. Pour the wine into frying pan; cover and reduce heat. Simmer for 10 minutes and flip the pork chops over. Cover them again and let them simmer for another 10 minutes. Make sure the wine doesn't completely evaporate or the pork chops will burn. You may have to add a little more wine to the pan.

    Something else. I made this by sauteing thin onion slices & mushrooms in the pan before browning the chops. After cooking, I thickened up the sauce with about 2 tbsp of flour then spooned the sauce with onion & mushroom over some rice. The rice & sauce was "melt-in-your-mouth" and the chops were incredibly tender. I will definately make this again. My husband and I loved it!  -  29 Sep 2008


    This dish was very simple to make but WAY too salty! (my only reason for the 3 star rating) I only used a total of 2 tsps. (which I still felt would be too much!) and the salt was overpowering. Getting past the saltiness of my initial trial, the pork was tender and had a very yummy flavour reminiscent of Italian sausage with every bite of pork/fennel seed. There was a lot of liquid when the pork was done, so I removed the pork to a plate, reduced the liquid over high heat and returned the pork to the pan to heat it up. I will definitely be making this again, but will adjust the salt accordingly.  -  29 Sep 2008
