Pork chops with feta and beetroot salad recipe
Hearty pork chops grilled or barbecued with a tangy make-ahead salad on the side - this is midweek dining at its best. If you're feeling extra lazy, buy the feta already marinated from the deli.
- 200g feta
- 1 tbsp parsley, chopped
- 1 tbsp mint, chopped
- 1 tsp lemon zest
- 3/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 410g tin baby beetroot
- 4 pork loin chops
Cut feta into a 1.5cm dice. Place in a bowl or jar with the herbs and lemon zest, and top with oil to cover. Stir or shake to combine. Leave for at least an hour to marinate.
Drain beetroot and halve or quarter, depending on size. Combine with marinated feta.
Heat a heavy frypan over medium heat. Season pork chops well and cook for 3-4 minutes each side until just cooked through.
Serve with feta and beetroot salad.
- Save extra oil from the feta and use in salad dressings.
- Any leftover feta would be great on an antipasto plate or stirred through pasta.
