Baked pork loin chops with potatoes, baby carrots and feta cheese. Recipe
Reviewing cooking magazines brought to me from airports, I have found that Anglo-Saxons are very fond of pork chops, but at home we have never had much tradition with them. Anyway, my boyfriend loves them, so I tend to look for inspiration in British publications to prepare them. These baked loin chops with potatoes, baby carrots, and feta cheese are her favorite recipes.
I like the idea of combining the protagonist of the dish in the same source, in this case the chops as a protein source, and the garnish based on vegetables and some new potatoes. In addition, the whole is well seasoned with aromatic herbs and a fresh touch of lemon and feta cheese that finishes rounding off all the flavors.

How to Make Baked Pork Chops with Potatoes, Baby Carrots, and Feta CheeseDifficulty: easy
- Total time 1 hour
- Elaboration 10 m
- Cooking 50 m
Preheat the oven to 180ºC. Wash and dry the potatoes and carrots if necessary. Cut the potatoes in half or in quarters if they were too large, peel the onion and cut into quarters. Distribute in a large baking dish and mix with a jet of extra virgin olive oil.
Add the garlic, mustard and cumin, season and stir well. Bake 30 minutes, stirring halfway through cooking. Make sure it is not too dry, adding oil or water if necessary.
Meanwhile, cook the chops on both sides on a griddle with some oil, about 3-4 minutes, until they are marked with a golden hue. When the half hour has passed, add the wine and the juice of half a lemon, the herbs and mix well.
Incorporate the pork chops to the source, mixing with the juices from the vegetable roast, season with salt and pepper and add half of the feta cheese on top. Bake about 10 more minutes, until the chops are done.
What to accompany the baked pork chops with potatoes, baby carrots and feta cheese
We will serve these baked loin chops with potatoes, baby carrots and feta cheese with the rest of the crumbled cheese on top, fresh parsley and another splash of lemon juice. As I was saying, this recipe already incorporates a very complete garnish, so I would only add to the menu a good bread and a fresh dessert based on seasonal fruit.Tags: Meats And Birds Vegetables And Legumes Fish
