A Special Delight
Côtes de Porc Sauce Tomate
This is it if you want pork chops that gives you something extra special! It is easy to make and is a dish that is good enough for a special occasion because of the beautiful creamy sauce that accompanies it.
Pork is widely used all over France and is made into endless pork sausages and other meats which are all so good.
But for this recipe we are using small but good quality pork chops which you can purchase from your butcher or supermarket as they will give good results.
The sauce is made from fresh tomatoes, wine or stock such as chicken or vegetable and a little tomato paste and Dijon mustard.
Of course, the final ingredient is cream so if you are on a diet, choose this recipe for a special occasion or just have a small amount if you can, I tend to pour too much over the chops as it is so delicious.
