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), Pork in Grapes 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 Pork in Grapes is made totally from scratch I’m entering it into Javelin Warrior’s Made with Love Mondays challenge.
