Time 10 min


  • 4
    pork loin chops, trimmed of any excess fat
  • 1
    wholegrain mustard
  • 1
    large red apple, cored and sliced
  • 1
    Knorr garlic & rosemary cook-in-bag
  • 4

  • 3

40 min

It is not necessary to preheat the oven. Rub the mustard into the pork chops. Place them in the bag along with the apple pieces and the Knorr spice mixture.

Seal the bag, then gently massage the spices into the pork chops until they are evenly coated. Place the bag on an oven tray with the pork chops in a single layer.

Bake the pork chops at 180°C for 40 minutes on the lowest shelf in your oven. (Note: leave enough room for the bag to expand without touching the sides of the oven and make sure that the grill is off!)

While the pork chops are in the oven you can start preparing the veggies. Cook the potatoes in a pot of boiling, salted water until soft. Drain, add the butter and milk and mash until creamy and smooth. (Think of this as your pre-dinner workout!) Season to taste.

Top and tail the green beans and cut into 4-5cm pieces. Steam and then season to taste.

At this point your kitchen should be smelling amazing! Carefully open the bag and pop the pork chops and apple onto warmed plate. Spoon the juices from the bag over the chops. Serve with creamy mash and steamed beans.
