Tender Pork Chops with Creamy Mashed English Peas perfect served alongside some roasted baby potatoes and garlic green beans.
I was recently inspired by a recipe created by Gino D’Acampo which he cooked on the ITV programme – This Morning while completely naked. The recipe he made looked delicious, however also very high in syns and not particularly low in calories if healthy eating.
So I just had to create my own Slimming World version and this does not disappoint. I can’t comment on what Gino’s original recipe tasted like obviously, but knowing how yummy this tastes, it's got to be pretty phenomenal.
I do recommend using fresh English peas if you can get them, as the flavour is just so much better. Frozen peas will work too, but they just don't have the same creaminess as fresh. Sadly they are not available all year round though, so if you are wanting to make this out of season, then frozen peas will just have to do.
I used lean pork loin chops (no bone), which are pretty quick to cook, but you can use bone-in ones too if you prefer, just be aware they will take a little longer cooking time.

Yield 2 servings
This recipe is gluten free, Slimming World and Weight Watchers friendly
- Extra Easy - 2.5 syns per serving
- SP - 2.5 syns per serving (serve with speed foods of choice)
- WW Smart Points - 5 syns per serving
- 4 small pork loin chops (all visible fat removed), approx 400g/14oz
- 1 cup of fresh shelled English peas
- 3 laughing cow lights (4.5 syns)
- chicken stock
- pinch of garlic powder
- cooking oil spray
- salt and black pepper
- Season chops with a little salt and black pepper.
- Spray a frying pan over a medium heat with some cooking oil and add the pork chops. Cooking on each side until nice and golden.
- In the meantime add the shelled peas to a another frying pan, cover lightly with the stock (just enough to cover them fully) and place over a medium heat and simmer for approx 8 (until tender and a lovely bright green colour).
- Add the laughing cow lights one at a time, plus a pinch of garlic powder, stirring as you do, so they melt into the peas. When all laughing cow lights are added, you can start to roughly mash up the peas, either rustic style with a potato masher or by using a blender or immersion blender.
- Serve the pork chops topped with the creamy mashed peas and choice of sides.
