Pork Chops with Sage Butter

Should make enough for 4 chops

– handful of fresh sage leaves, chopped (keep aside one whole leaf per chop)

– couple of cloves of garlic, crushed

– zest of one lemon

– butter, about 50g or so, enough to combine all the ingredients into a paste

– generous twist of black pepper & sea salt

combine all these in a mortar and pestle and crush together making sure they’re all thoroughly mashed up!

cut a little pocket in the side of the pork steaks, not right through to the otherside of the chop, just big enough to stuff with a couple of teaspoons of the sage butter, bruise a whole sage leaf and press it down on top of the chop. Get the bbq sizzling and pop the pork on until thoroughly cooked through. I served this with some Cornish new potatoes and grilled courgettes, tomatoes and red peppers.
