Pork chops with spinach and tarragon sauce  HERO

Cook the pearl barley following the packet instructions. Add the spinach for the last minute or two of cooking, then drain.

Meanwhile, heat 1 tbsp of the oil in a large frying pan over a high heat. Season the chops and sear on both sides. Remove from the pan. Heat the remaining oil and add the onions. Season, then cook for 7-8 minutes, until softened.

For the sauce, pour in the vinegar and wine and bubble for 5 minutes until reduced. Reduce the heat and add
the crème fraîche, tarragon and chops. Cook for 8 minutes until the pork is cooked through. Serve the pork chops with the pearl barley and onions, and spoon over the tarragon sauce.
