  1. Preheat the oven to gas 7, 220°C, fan 200°C. Put the potatoes in a bowl and cover with boiling water. Set aside for 10 minutes to soften.
  2. Drain the potatoes and put in a roasting tin with the peppers, rosemary, garlic and 1 tbsp of the oil. Season and toss together. Roast for 35-40 minutes, removing the garlic when soft.
  3. Meanwhile, score the fat of the pork chops and put in a shallow bowl. Add the remaining oil, the lemon juice and half the herbs. Season and marinate for 10 minutes.
  4. Peel the garlic and mash with a fork in a bowl. Add the mayo, remaining chives, most of the remaining parsley and the lemon zest, then mix. Season.
  5. Heat a griddle pan until hot. Cook the pork chops for 5-6 minutes on each side, pouring over the leftover marinade just before turning. Rest the chops for 5-10 minutes, covered in foil.
  6. Sprinkle the remaining parsley over the roasted veg and serve with the chops, resting juices and mayo.
