This pork chop recipe really requires a butchers cut, the chops are sliced double thick so get two chops in one, nice and thick and great for stuffing with whatever takes your fancy. For this recipe we stuffed the chops with thin slices of Serrano ham and an equal amount of thinly slice Manchego cheese and some sage leaves for good measure. The result was a slow baked dish packed with flavour, oozing with manchego with a hint of garden sage. Lovely!
