  3. Rub the pork chops with the 4 tsp oil; season. Heat a frying pan over a medium-high heat. Fry the chops for 7 mins each side, then use tongs to brown the fat against the pan. When the chops are firm to the touch and cooked through, remove the pan from the heat and leave to rest for a few mins. Serve with the pea and butter bean mash and any cooking juices, garnished with extra mint.

Tip: If you don't have butter beans, try tinned cannellini or haricot beans instead.
