Pork chops with almonds and rasins 

On the last night of our holiday in Albufura, we stumbled upon a lovely restaurant. It had a gorgeous outdoor dining setting with a huge play area with swings slides and a playhouse ( so we were all happy out) the gin and tonics were top class and I ordered pork chops with almonds and raisins.. They were just divine and I couldn’t wait to recreate them at home..


This is such an easy one pan bung in all in recipe.. The chops come out so tender , with a sweetness of the raisins and the crunch of the Almond, making my recreations just as good ( if not better) than my holidays. ( not blowing my own trumpet ir anything)

I Cant wait to hear how you guys get on with this one.. join in on the crac over in the One yummy mummy community group or over on the Facebook page, I’m also getting braver and cooked this dish live on Instagram stories,  Id love to see you guys over there x
