Please? I loathe pork (except crackling and scratchings) so have never cooked it. However, it's so cheap in the shops I think I must try and some to the tiny repertoire of Things My Children Will Eat. Any ideas? There is lots of something called pork loin around here, or else boneless chops that look like I would dry them out very easily.

Pork loin is lovely cooked in calvados. I was just thinking about doing pork chops for tea. Will look in my book and keep an eye out for you too.

Btw i really love the colour turquoise, so you clearly have impeccable taste

Get a pack of paxo stuffing. Flour and egg your chops and then dip them in the stuffing. Bung them under the grill

Pork loin is pork tenderloin, otherwise known as pork fillet (I think).

My kids aren't meat eaters, and wouldn't touch pork with a bargepole, so I never cook it.

My simplest but delicious recipie for boneless chops or pork loin is one that my mother used to cook for us as children.

You slice 3-4 onions into rings and add them to a casserole dish. Lay the pork chops/loin on top add a small cup of water then pop in the oven for 2 hours on a lowish heat (170 degrees).

The pork is really tender and the juice is delicious. I serve this with mashed potatoes and veg with the juice poured over the mash.

You can also do exactly the same recipie but with a tin of tomatoes added instead of water. In that case I add 2 cloves of garlic and a tin of flagolet beans. If you have any bacon around, chop a couple of rashers in to.

That one is nice with mash or with rice or (the way I like it) with a bowl of salad and some crusty bread (garlic bread if I'm feeling naughty)
