Christmas has officially begun in our household; neither of us have to go back to work until the new year. WOOHOO!
With that in mind it’s time to break out the festive recipes. I’ll be doing some baking next week, but first off is a delicious dinner featuring a Christmas classic ingredient that can divide a nation – SPROUTS!
Now I’ve always been a hater of sprouts myself. I don’t know why, maybe I had a bad experience when I was younger with an overcooked mushy offering. More than likely I just decided that I didn’t like sprouts and never got as far as actually eating one.
Fear not little sprouts, I’m older and wiser now. Well… I’m definitely older anyway.
Without further ado, I give to you:
The verdict? Well I thoroughly enjoyed the pork loin, but most of all I couldn’t get enough of the potato, chorizo and sprout combo. I could see this working just as well with turkey or chicken and it would make a great side dish on the Christmas table. Just pop it in a serving bowl and let everyone help themselves.
Here’s the recipe:
250g pork loin
1/2 tbsp black pepper (peppercorns if you have them)
2 cups new potatoes
3 tbsp chorizo
1 cup sprouts
1 clove garlic
Salt and pepper
Spoon the potato mixture onto plates, slice the pork and lay it over the top.
For extra indulgence, spoon over some gravy (artistic droplets optional!).
