Pork in Grapes

Cream sauce, chicken stock, quick, easy

This is a dish my mum used to make regularly when I was growing up. It then became a regular in my household and then got forgotten about for a few years. Sometimes it’s nice to give your favourites a rest and then rediscovering them makes them all the more special. When my son’s old school were putting together a cook book (7 years ago), this is one the recipes I gave them as it was my signature dish at the time!

Do get hold of some good pork chops as this will make all the difference to the flavour, there’s nothing worse than a bland pork chop!

Do you have dishes you’ve made relentlessly and then forgotten about? Do tell me about them in the comments below.

As this dish is totally made from scratch I’m entering it into Javelin Warrior’s Made with Love Mondays challenge.

    1. Camilla

      So pleased:-)

  5. Marge

    This is a new idea on me. I’ve never used grapes in cooking.
    I will definitely be giving this lovely recipe a go – My Husband is a big pork lover so he’ll be happy…
    Thanks x

    1. Camilla

      Great, glad to have spread the grape love:-)

  6. Paul Wilson

    Great idea, grapes are commonly available, but much underused in cooking.

  7. Kirsty Fox

    My husband would absolutely love this, I’m not a fan of pork, but like you said above it would probably go nicely with chicken too!

    1. Camilla

      Yay, do let me know how you get on:-)

  8. Maya Russell

    I’ve never heard of this dish or combination. But it must work well.

  9. Annie Costa

    Hmmm I’ve tried pork&apple but never grapes..looking forward to tying this!

  10. Jane Willis

    Perfect! Having had a power cut today thank to the storm, I was looking for something that could be cooked entirely on the hob and used ingredients I have in the fridge – this fits the bill and will be on tonight’s menu.

  11. Beth Young

    Such a nostalgic recipe! Haven’t eaten this for years but most definitely want to have it again this week after reading this!

    1. Camilla

      Fab, I’m glad I’ve reminded you of it:-)

  12. Ursula Hunt

    Unusual combination and recipe

  13. Ursula Hunt

    Unusual combination

  14. Lisa Williams

    I never would of putting these two together but the more I think about it the more sense it makes thank you so much for all your inspiration :)

  15. Anneli Faiers

    I must say that looks yummy. Creamy and rich and I bet the grapes are just lovely. I think my equivalent dish that my Mum would roll out regularly would have been chicken thighs in a cream and mushroom sauce….:) Comforting childhood stuff. x

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Anneli, I love a creamy mushroom sauce too:-)

  16. DANIELLE VEDMORE

    Looks yummy hun – especially paired with the rice. Am not a big fan of pork but I think the cream and grapes would definitely make it more tasty – everything tastes better with cream added to it!

    1. Camilla

      If you don’t like pork then I’m sure it would be equally good with chicken:-)

  17. Javelin Warrior

    I’ve never had grapes with pork chops before, but I’m intrigued by the combination. And I love the sauce! I don’t know if I have a “signature” dish (and I hate that word) and definitely nothing this unique!

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Mark:-) The strangest combo I ever had was as a kid visiting my aunt when she was having a dinner party, we had fish with bananas and flaked almonds, this has stuck in my mind as I thought it was so wacky:-) I can’t say that’s a recipe I’m longing to recreate though LOL!

  18. euphoriabuzz

    Interesting recipe.

  19. Ness

    I’ve been waiting for this recipe since I saw your photo of it on Twitter. I love the idea of the sweetness of the grapes cutting through the heaviness of the cream. I’m sure all the family would like this.

    1. Camilla

      Aah, thanks Ness, nice to know it tickled your taste buds:-)
