A brilliantly flavorsome and complete recipe; this is the perfect dish to fix just as you dash out of the house in the morning. It only takes a few moments to put together, but the long cooking time ensures a rich and deep flavor that is just fabulous to return home to.
If your chops are particularly fatty then cut a little off, but leave some pork fat intact, as the cooking process will render it down and add to that wonderful sauce.
