Pork Chop and Hulk Mash

This is one of those simple mid-week meals that packs some mega flavour. Nothing too flashy, just a few humble ingredients and a really tasty result. I’ve used Italian seasoning here, but feel free to use whatever herbs and spices you’ve got tucked away in your cupboard – experiment with it!IMG_5411Ingredients

  • 1 Pork Chop
  • 1 tablespoon of Italian Seasoning
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 Potato, roughly chopped
  • 6 Broccoli Florets, roughly chopped
  • 2 handfuls of Spinach, finely chopped
  • Bunch of Chives, finely chopped


  1. Add the potato and broccoli to boiling salted water and boil for 15 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, lay the pork on a large sheet of tin foil. Season with salt and pepper, the Italian seasoning and 2 teaspoons of olive oil. Rub it into the pork and cover with another sheet of tin foil. Grab hold of anything flat and give it a good bashing, increasing the surface area until it’s about 1cm thick.
  3. Get a dry frying pan on a high heat and fry the pork for about 6 minutes, or until cooked through. Turn every minute and turn the heat down nearer the end of the cooking if you need to.
  4. After 15 minutes, drain the potato and broccoli. Use a fork to mash it up and stir through the spinach and chives. Add a drop of olive oil to bring it all together.
  5. Pile the mash onto a plate, slice the pork and serve it on top. Bless it with a final sprinkling of chives to make it look pretty.
